The origins of the Anglo-Saxon name Lovely come from its first bearer, who was a dandy or one who wore his hair in locks. The surname Lovely survived Norman influence after the Norman Conquest of 1066 and maintained its Saxon roots. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Lovely Early Origins



The surname Lovely was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat. Igod Luveloc held a family seat in Suffolk in 1283. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name proliferated in the London area.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Lovelys to arrive in North America:
