The distinguished surname Lohnes is of German origin. It is derived from the German personal name "Apollonius," which is itself derived from "Apollo," the name of the Greek god of the arts, archery, and divination. The surname was probably originally used to indicate "a son of Apollonius."

Lohnes Early Origins



The surname Lohnes was first found in Westphalia, where the surname Lohnes was thought to have originated. The young Lohnes family was instrumental during this early period, playing a crucial role in the development of medieval Westphalian society. An early record mentions der Lönis zu Mülhausen in a document that dates back to 1350.
