In mediaeval German "lud" meant "fame" and "liut" or "Leute" meant "people" or "folk;" while "her," meant "army." Thus "liut-her" meant "person in the army," while "lud-her" would be a "famous soldier."

Lueder Early Origins



The surname Lueder was first found in Saxony, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. In northern Germany the name Lueder was more popular, while in southern Germany the root was Liut-her or Leuther, and in Thuringia "Luther" (Martin Luther's father wrote his name "Luder"). In mediaeval German "lud" meant "fame" and "liut" meant "Leute" ("people" or "folk," thus "liut-her" would be "Lord of the people",) and these are the two possible sources for the name. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
