See the footnote in my first reply. The Danes can explain it better than I, but a person might be identified to his occupation or residence location, and often it became a permanent part of the family name at some point.

And Nødgaard was shown as address of Christen and his grandmother in heading of the 1870 census that I posted.

(If you are not familiar with the old patronymic naming custom that caused the identity problem, this might be helpful):
