The surname Van Burgen comes from the Middle Dutch word "burch," or "burg," meaning a fortified town. The prefixes "Van" and "den" mean "from" and "the" respectively. Thus this surname means "from the hill". As such, it may have been topographic name for someone who lived by a citadel or walled city; or, it may have been a habitational name, taken on from a place name, such as Burch in South Holland or Burcht in Antwerp province, Belgium.
