While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Lorey family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname.

The surname Lorey was an occupational name for a person who worked at a granary. The name translates literally from the Old French as of the granary.
