Family name origins & meanings:
- German : topographic name for someone who lived in a forest, Middle High German tan. This was originally a distinct word from tanne ‘pine tree’, and denoted a forest of any kind. Inevitably, however, the two became confused, with the result that Tann now denotes only coniferous forests; it is a rather rare and literary word.
- English (East Anglia) : variant of Tanner 1.
