Rahn Family CrestThe German surname Rahn, also found in Austria and Switzerland, is a nickname from the Middle High German term ran meaning “slim or slight.” The name may also derive from a short form of the Slavic personal name Ranislav. The name Rahn is first recorded near Hamburg in northern Germany in the 16th Century with later references in the province of Holstein. The earliest written record of the name Rahn in the United States is an immigration record of one Anna Elisabetha Rahn who came to Pennsylvania from Bremen, Germany in 1737.
