About the Mortensen surname

Denmark

Many family names end with "sen", which (originally) means "son", so Mortensen is son of Morten. Daughters could similarly be named Mortensdatter. In modern times neither of these two conventions are practiced anymore. (See also http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/-sen .)

In Denmark there are about 30000 people with the Mortensen family name (2010).
