Luster Early Origins



The surname Luster was first found in Swabia, where the name could be considered to have made a great contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of modern Europe. Literally the name meant "one of lively or pleasant disposition." The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts, with each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.
