Arnhem is a city in the Netherlands. I believe that the original name of the city was Arendsheim - from arn - eagle and heim - home.

There are German last names Flansburg and Flensburg (no h), both denoting that their bearers are from Flensburg - a city in the German province of Schleswig-Holstein. I have no idea where Flensburg comes from, other then that burg means city.
