Multiple Origins for the Surname Loper



The distinguished surname Loper is of German origin. It is derived from "Loop," the name of a city located in the northern state of Holstein. Alternatively, it may also be derived from "Loope," the name of a town on the Sieg River in Westphalia.

Loper Early Origins



The surname Loper was first found in the cities of Loop and Loope; it is likely that two separate branches of the families emerged in these two regions. The progenitor of the name is believed to have moved to another region from one of these cities, and was therefore referred to as "Loper." The young Loper family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval German society.
