English term or phrase: detlefsen
Holstein,Denmark
Danish translation:See explanation
Explanation:
Detlefsen: surname of a person. In Danish many surnames end in 'sen' (son).

Holstein: Holsten. Apparently this person lives in Holstein, once a part of Denmark.

This looks like someone just wanted to put his or her mark on something. Sort of comparable to saying: 'Johnson, Wales, United Kingdom'.

Hope this helps.
