I agree with Yiva's explanation. I would just add that the name is really meaningless because it's made up, like a lot of Swedish names that don't end in -son. I used to know someone called Kihlgren, "wedge-branch", same type of name.
Bruce Springsteen is supposed to be of Dutch origin on his father's side, but the name may have been altered under American influence.
