Meaning of the Name “Bergen”
The origin of the name of Bergen County is a matter of debate. It is believed that the County is
named for one of the earliest settlements, Bergen, settled in 1660 in the area known today as
Jersey City Heights in Hudson County. Several earlier sources attribute the name to Bergen,
Norway, while others attribute it to Bergen op Zoom in the Netherlands. Still others attribute it to
the Dutch word meaning “hill” or “place of safety”. Some sources say that the name is derived
from one of the earliest settlers of Nieuw Amsterdam (now New York City), Hans Hansen
Bergen, a native of Norway, who arrived in New Netherlands in 1633.
The name “Bergen,” originally derived from the word for “hill” in Norway, Belgium and the
Netherlands, was applied to towns located on hills. New Jersey’s Bergen was originally a
settlement on a hill. Therefore, the currently accepted theory is, that the geographical location of
the original town is the most likely reason it was called Bergen.
The name “Bergen” was later applied to the County, which was established in 1683.
