Origins Available: French, German


The origins of the Loup name come from two distinct sources; in some instances, the name came from the animal "wolf," or "loup" in French, while other occurrences of this surname were no doubt derived from the Saint Loup of Troyes in the 5th century, who is said to have stopped Attila.

Loup Early Origins



The surname Loup was first found in La Rochelle, a port city, and capital of the former Aunis province of France. Early recorded references to the name include Michel Le Loup who was landlord of Comptes in 1572, his son Yves Le Loup, who was a "conseiller" to the king in 1622, as well as Anne, the daughter of Claude and Francoise Le Loupe, who was christened at Gerbeviller in the department of Meurthe-Et-Moselle in July, 1619.
