The colorful history of Saxony provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Löser family. In the medieval era, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The ancient dukedom of Saxony derived its name from the Germanic tribe name the Saxons who inhabited the territory after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Löser Early Origins



The surname Löser was first found in Saxony, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. The oldest form of the name is Loeser or Lesar, which stems from Lazarus and the Hebrew names Eleazer and Elieser.
