Etymology & Historical Origin - Landen

Landen is probably a made-up variation of Landon, which is a transferred use of an English surname, originating as a place name. The name comes from the Old English words “lang” (long) and “dūn” (hill). Although the surname is English in origin, as a given name, Landon, along with its invented respellings, are distinctly American.

Popularity of the Name Landen

Landen first showed up on the U.S. naming charts in 1997. It saw significant growth in the early 2000s (almost 500 positions). Today it is nearly on the Top 200 list. It’s a clear example of the trend whereby Americans like to use surnames as first names. However, Landen does not appear to be a known surname. Rather, Landen, Landin and Landyn seem to be invented from London/Landon type names. We have to admit, there’s nothing historically significant about this name so it’s a bit of a yawner. We suspect its popularity is simply due to the fact that enough American parents just like the sound of it.
