The ancient origin of the name Dennison was found in the archives. Meaning 'the son of Dennis' variants of the name Dennison include Dennis, Denison, Denniss, Denis, Dennisson, Dinnis, Dench, Denny and Dennys. This name and its variants are derived from the old French 'le Danei' meaning 'the Dane' which reveals its Norman roots. It can also be from the French first name Dionysius and is also an occasional translation of the Irish name McDonagh. The Gaelic O'Donnghusa name is anglicized as Dennis and Dennison. The name was introduced into England and then Ireland by the Normans in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. A renowned bearer of the name was Aaron Lufkin Dennison (1812-1895) who was a watchmaker and inventor who invented the Dennison Combined Gauge that was used in watch repairs and who founded the successful Dennison Watch Case Company. The village of Dennison in Ohio was named in the year 1873 for Governor William Dennison (1815-1882), who served in the Cabinet of President Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War.The Dennison family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Dennison descendants.
