As a surname, Mong is derived from the Scandinavian personal name
Magnus. The name was born by King of Norway Magnus the Good, who died in 1047. It made its way to Britain through the Danish invasions of Northeastern Britain.
Early Origins of the Mong family
The surname Mong was first found in Shetland
, where they held a family seat
in their territories in the Orkneys. The Viking influence of northern Scotland
developed as a stepping stone to Iceland from Scandinavia. Many Viking expeditions were started from the Orkneys and the northern tip. Rollo, first Duke of Normandy
, started his conquest of that part of France as an expeditionary from here. Hugo Magnus was found at 1114. Later the name was found in Cortance, Aberdeen in the 17th century.
