No.

Oh God no.

Why does anyone with a remotely similar name HAVE TO BE related to each other? There are BILLIONS of people, maybe TRILLIONS of people across the Federation. Chances are there are going to be lots of them named Hansen or Hanson or something like that.

Enough with the small universe where everyone knows everyone else. It's bad enough in Star Wars where they take each and every person who was in the pod race audience and give them a complete backstory, name and everything. Let's not also do it for trek.

Hanson/Hansen is not exactly a rare name, there would be no reason for them to be related at all.
Normally I'm not a fan of linking everyone with the same name, but in this case I like the idea. Not because of the name, but because of the Borg. It would flesh out Hanson and the Hansens and their motivations concerning the Borg.
