The distinguished surname Luisi has its origins in Spain. However, it appears to have been derived from the Germanic Lodowicus, which is composed of the elements "hlod," meaning "fame" and "wig," meaning "war."
Early Origins of the Luisi family
The surname Luisi was first found in Aragon, in the northeastern region of the Iberian peninsula. Luisi was the surname of a very noble family, proceeding from Aragon, but originating from France. One of the earliest references to this name is a record of Bartolome Luis, who entered the Infantry of the Royal Army in the year 1867.
