The Lauks family name is thought to be derived from the Latin given name Lucas. There are versions of this name in most of the languages of Europe.
The surname Lauks was first found in the old French Province of Angoumois. There is a German name Laux, and it is plausible that the bearers of this name in France are descended from them.
