LOWE Family History

This ancient surname which can be confusingly English, Dutch, Germanic, Norman French or even Scottish in origin. It sometimes has identical spellings in different countries, but quite different meanings! If English it is usually spelt Low or Lowe, and derives from the pre 7th century word 'hlaw, meaning a prominent small hill, a barrow or burial mound, and hence somebody who lived by such a place. However in all countries it may be a medieval nickname derived from the Old Norse word 'lagr, meaning low or short, and hence probably given to a tall person!. The Norman French word 'lou', meaning wolf is also a possibility as a nickname in all countries...
