Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling.

Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Lengloys, including Langlois, Langloi, Langlais, Langlo, Langloys, Langois, L'Angloi, L'Anglais, L'Anglo, L'Angloys, L'Angloi, L'Anglois, Anglois, Angloi, Anglais, Anglo, Angloy and many more.
