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.

Loux Early Origins



The surname Loux was first found in the village of Geislingen, where Hans Lux, the first recorded bearer of the name, was living in 1484. The name spread throughout Swabia during its earliest years, eventually emerging in other regions of Germany as well.
