Etymology[edit]

  • The name "Rambo" is of unknown origin. It can be dated back to the 17th-century Swedish immigrant Peter Gunnarsson Rambo. According to folk legend it is derived from the mountain Ramberget - ”Raven’s Hill” in Gothenburg from whence the Swedish immigrants to Delaware originated in the 17th century.
  • "Rambo" is also the name of an old farm in Vestfold county, Norway ("Rambøe" 1664, "Ramboe" 1723) - and about 65 people in Norway have Rambo as a family name. The Old Norse form of the name might have been *Hrafnabú. The first element is then the genitive plurals of hrafn m. 'raven', and the last element is n. 'farm'. The name was brought to the US by Norwegian settlers.
  • "Rambo" become widely known after John Rambo, a fictional Vietnam War veteran and protagonist of the film series Rambo.
