The ancient and distinguished German surname Lewerenz is derived from the personal name "Lorens," the German and Scandinavian variant of "Lawrence," a name of Latin origins denoting a "man from Laurentium." The name Lewerenz indicates "son of Lorens," and was most likely first borne by the son of someone named Lorens.

Lewerenz Early Origins



The surname Lewerenz was first found in Hessen, where the family became noted for its many branches within the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied and enrolled by the princes of the region. The earliest known bearer of the name was Lukas Laurencii, who was a painter in Mähren in 1447. In their later history, the family became a power unto itself and was elevated to the ranks of nobility as it grew in wealth and influence.
