Where did the German Lowenberg family come from? What is the German Lowenberg family crest and coat of arms? When did the Lowenberg family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Lowenberg family history?

The German family name Lowenberg is derived from the combination of two element: "lowen" or "löwe," meaning "lion," and "berg," meaning "hill" or "mountain." There are several towns by this name in Germany, located in Silesia, Württemberg, and in Brandenburg. It is most likely that several families independently assumed this name during the Middle Ages, when the German speaking peoples began using surnames with more and more frequency. Some no doubt took the name of where they were from; perhaps others had already been known by Lowenberg as a nick-name.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Lowenberg, Lowenburg, Loewenberg, Löwenberg and others.

First found in Bohemia and the Rhineland. There was a Loew family that was one of the oldest and most respected families of the Rhineland. Chronicles mention them as early as 1265, though the first individual known was the knight Erwin Loew around 1300. Another early recorded instance of this name is of a Cuonrad Leuwenberg in Oberjesingen, near Herrenberg in the fourteenth century.
