Origins Available: German, Italian


The Leuvelin name is generally thought to have evolved from a place name to a surname. There was a Lauffen in Wurtemberg, as well as places called Laufen and Lauf in other parts of the Holy Roman Empire. Versions of the name that evolve from the word "läufer," which meant "runner," are thought to have originally been an occupational name for a messenger. There is also a Jewish Ashkenazic name Leuvelin.

Leuvelin Early Origins



The surname Leuvelin was first found in Wurtemberg, and later in Switzerland, where the Lauffer spelling was most common.
