The origin of the name Anderson is very interesting. This is one of the so-called patronymic names, it comes from the union of two words. One of them -Ander- is a variation of Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. The other word that makes it up is "Son" so the meaning of this Scottish name is "The son of the Scottish patron saint".
This English patronymic spread to the United States through immigrants, where it underwent variation. Among these variations is "Anderssen" or "Andersson". They all share the same meaning.
