Meaning and Origin of Outten
Does anyone have info on my maiden name, Outten? I've heard that it may be Swedish or Dutch and that it may even be English. A website devoted to the name isn't definitive but I have seen the similar Van Outten which leads me to believe that it may be Swedish. I'd love to know what it means.

Van points to a Dutch origin. Perhaps 'van Houten'. Hout means 'wood' (small forrest).
