Origins Available: English, French


Noble surnames, such as Lovas, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Lovas, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful Ile de France region. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate.The Lovas family originally derived its surname from the name of the place in Levy Saint Nom in Ile de France.

Lovas Early Origins



The surname Lovas was first found in Ile-de-France, where this remarkable family has been traced since the 12th century.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Aide dieu au second Chretien Levis
Motto Translation: God help the second Chretien Levis
