SORENSEN Family History

This interesting name is of Scandinavian origin, specifically Danish and Norwegian, and is one of the patronymic forms from the personal name "Soren, Sohren". The given name is ultimately derived from the Latin "Severinus", a variant form of "Severus", from the vocabulary word meaning "harsh, austere". Severin(us) was the name borne by several early Christian saints, and became a popular personal name in most European countries, subsequently generating a wide variety of surnames. Examples include: Severin and S(e)urin (France); Severino (Italy); Severn (England); Seffrin(g) and Severing (Germany); and Sewerin (Sweden).
