Nelson

The Nielsson surname originated in Scandanavia and is derived from the Scandinavian personal, or first name Njáll, which is a Gaelic version of Niall.  The name changed when 'Swedish' settlers, probably during the age of Vikings, moved into Ireland.  Over time 'Niels' and 'Nils' developed and the suffix –sson added to mean “son of”, it was Americanized during the great migration.
