Meaning & History

The first element is Hel-, which is probably derived from place names ultimately derived from Swedish helig "holy, sacred, blessed" or the male given name Helge. The second element is the common surname suffix -ander (a combination of land "land" and the habitational suffix -er). The second element is sometimes said to be derived from Greek aner "man".
