LINDE Family HistoryRecorded in over forty spelling forms ranging from Lind, Linde, Linden, and Line or Lyne, to Lingner, Verlinden, Van Lint, Terlinden and Lindman, this famous surname is of Germanic pre 7th century origins. It has two possible sources. Firstly, the surname may be a topographical name for someone who lived by a linda tree, the old word for the modern lime. Quite why lime trees should have produced such a popular surname is unclear, but it may be that the lime was associated with pagan religions. Certainly topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages.
