Loux History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The roots of the German surname Loux can be traced to Swabia, now the region of Baden-Wurrtemberg. The name may be a diminutive of the personal name Lukas, used as a surname to mean "son of Laux." Alternatively, the name may be of nickname origin, deriving from the German word "Luchs," meaning "lynx." In this case, the name would have been first borne by someone with keen eyesight.
