The origin of the distinguished Ohlson family can be traced to the historic Scandinavian country of Sweden. The surname Ohlson is derived from the Scandianavian personal name Oleifr, which also took the forms Olaf, Olof, and Olav. This name is composed of the elements ans, which means god, and leifr, which means reli c. The suffix -sson and its variants are translatable as son of.
