LOW Family History

This interesting surname has no less that four origins. Firstly, it can be a topographical name for someone who lived near a hill, deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "hlaw", meaning hill or burial mound. Secondly, it may be a nickname for a short man, deriving from the Middle English "lah", low or short. Thirdly, it may be from a nickname for a crafty person, deriving from the Anglo-Norman French "lou, leu", meaning "wolf", originally from the Latin "lupus". Finally, it may be a pet form of the personal name "Lawrence", coming from the Middle English and Old French given name "Lorens, Laurence", itself deriving from the Latin Lurentius meaning "man from Laurentum", a town in Italy probably named from it's laurels or bay trees...
