The surname Mangrum derived from the given name Magnus, which means "great" in Latin and means "power" in Swedish. The name was made famous by St. Magnus and Magnus, the son of St. Olaf of Sweden. In Baden and Wuerttemberg, the most popular form of the name was Mang, while in northern Germany the most common form of the name is Magnussen.

Mangrum Early Origins



The surname Mangrum was first found in northern Germany, where this family became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. The name was made famous by St. Magnus, and in Baden and Wuerttemberg the popular form became "Mang." Thus chronicles mention Jakob Meng, son of Pualin Mang of Freiburg in 1570. The name is common in northern Germany especially in the form Magnussen, perhaps taking the name from Magnus, the son of St. Olaf of Sweden. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the feudal system.
