I believe Nels Olsen was an actual storekeeper. He's mentioned in a biography about Laura Ingalls Wilder.

My great-grandpa was named Nels. He was from Sweden. I like the name. It sounds like a traditional Swedish name.

I've never seen this in Sweden. I would guess it was used among early Swedish settlers in America.
According to statistics there are only 26 Nels in Sweden, so I don't think this should be considered a Swedish name at all. [noted -ed]

It's our family name. My grandfather came from Holland in the early 1900's. I always thought that it was a dutch name. My mother just told me that our ancestors in Holland came from Sweden. Don't think I like that. I've always thought that I was all Dutch. All the other grandparents came from Holland around 1900.
