The name means 'Peter's son'. It's a Danish/Norwegian form. The word for the English word 'son' is 'søn' (albeit here written as 'sen') in Danish/Norwegian.The name is quite common in Denmark as a whole, and especially in certain areas of northern and southern Slesvig/Schleswig and the southern part of Jylland/Jutland and on the island of Rømø/Roemoe. The same way you have other Danish surnames like Hansen, Jensen, Olsen and so on. The Swedes use the same, but here 'sen' is changed to 'son' like in Olsson, Hansson and so on. the son of Peter
