Loge Family History

Loge Name Meaning

Dutch: nickname from Middle Dutch logghe ‘heavy’. German: topographic name from log ‘marshy ground’, or a habitational name from Loga or Logum, derived from the same word. Possibly Norwegian, a habitational name from any of several farmsteads in southeastern Norway, from the earlier form Leikvin (see Loken). French: topographic name for someone living in a small cottage or temporary dwelling, from Old French loge ‘lodge’. Stonemasons in particular lived in such dwellings while engaged on major construction projects such as churches or cathedrals, and the surname may therefore in some cases may have denoted a mason. French: habitational name from any of the places in northern France called La Loge or Les Loges, derived from a Germanic word laubja ‘(hut covered with) leaves’.
