I have relatives in Sweden, and I have asked them about the name as well. Originally it was Maple Branch. The problem was that the English alphabet has 26 letters, the Swedish one has 28. they have no "W" but three letters we do not. So when they came to the US they chose "Lund" as it sounded similar and was a Swedish word that meat Grove.
So instead of Maple branch we all became Grove Branch.
