The name Von Hattenstræde originates from the customs officer Henrik von Hatten, who came to Randers from the town of Hatten in Germany in 1678. He had a son named Hermann, who later became a merchant and a distiller and after whom the street was named. Von Hattenstræde first appears in a census from 1801.
For many years, the northern part of the street was named Krankhusstræde (Hospital Lane) after the military hospital that was located at No. 9 in the 1700-1800s. It was not until around 1860 that the entire street was renamed Von Hattenstræde.
