In Reply to: Sanderlin name origins by David Brian Sanderlin of 315

Brian, I am told that Sanderlin is actually a Scandinavian name although the Sanderlins came from Scotland, according to family lore. The -lin is a diminutive, like -son, and the name means son of Sander. This from my family. I also found an explation suggesting the name is a corruption of Sandy Lands, a region in Scotland, which I tend to doubt. There is a pro golfer from Stockholm, Sweden by the name of Sanderlin. He plays on the European tour, or at least he did a couple of years ago.
