The surname Loflin was first found in Austria, where the name could be considered to have made a great contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of modern Europe. The name's literal meaning referred to the craftsman who carved out wooden spoons. Later, it came to represent numerous branches of a powerful family. Chronicles first mention Hans Loeffler of Stuttgart in 1447. The name first became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in tribal and national conflicts, where each group sought power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Loeffler, Loeffel, Loefel, Loefeler, Loeffers, Leffler (Silesia), Loepeler (northern Germany), Loeffelmann, Loeffels, Loefels, Loffler and many more.
