Svensson (also Svenson and anglicised Swensson, Swenson or Swanson) is the ninth most common Swedish family name, and literally means "son of Sven", or "Sven's son", originally a patronymic surname. Sven (in Danish and Norwegian also Svend and in Norwegian also "Svein") is a Nordic first name which is used throughout Scandinavia, Estonia and Germany. The name itself is Old Norse for "Young man" or "Young warrior."

In Swedish, "Svensson" is used to signify an ordinary Swede (akin to an average Joe), as in "Hon är en riktig svensson" ("She's a typical Svensson"). The term can be derogatory or descriptive.
