The name doesn't sound swedish at all. After reading about it it's seems like it's a swedish noble family with roots in Värmland. Originally a german name.
Lots of norteuropeans, germans, frenchspeaking beligians and so on, went to parts of Sweden with lot of mines in the 1600-th century, since they where good smiths and knew a lot of stuff about mining and so forth they where highly respected. Some of them became noblemen. A early case of "arbetskraftinvandring".
