Origins Available: Belgium, Dutch


The surname Loo is a topographic name derived from the Middle Dutch word "lo" which meant 'grove' or 'clearing'. The name was then originally for someone who lived in such a grove or clearing. The Dutch prefix "Van" means 'of' or 'one who lived at' and was often attached to location names to create a surname.
