Record in over fifty different spellings from Lewis, Lois, Lowis and Loisi, to such as Ludovici, Lotze, Lohde, and Ludwikiewicz, throughout Europe, this great and ancient name is generally accepted as being of pre 5 Century Frankish origins. It derives from the personal name hludwig, compose of elements hlud, meaning loud or famous, plus wig, battle. As such, it was born by the founder of the Frankish dynasty, who was recorded in surviving chronicles of the Roman Empire as Ludovicus and Chlodovechus, latter form becoming French Clovis, Clouis, and later Louis. Lowis or Lewis is the Anglo-French form of name, and Lowis le Briton was entered in the Red Book of Exchequer, Essex, in 1166. Surname first appeared on record at the beginning of the 13 Century. William Lewys was noted as a witness in the 1267 Fines Court Rolls of Suffolk. Confusingly, in Wales, Lewis was also used as an anglicization of the Welsh name Llywelyn, from llyw, leader, and eilyn, likeness. Llewelyn ap-Madoc, alias Lewis Rede, was archdeacon of Brecon, Wales, in 1437. One of the most natable bearers of the name was American explorer Meriwether Lewis, who, with William Clark, led an overland expedition from. Louis to the Pacific Ocean in the early years of the 19th Century. The first record spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Robert Lowis, which was dated 1202, in Pipe Rolls of Lancashire. Throughout centuries, surnames in every country have continued to develop, often leading to astonishing variants of original spelling.

Contrary to popular opinion, the majority of Welsh people do not name Jones, Registrar General reported less than 14 percent in 1853. However, just 10 common surnames do make up over 55 percent: J ones, Williams, Davies, Thomas, Evans, Roberts, Hughes, Lewis, Morgan and Griffiths. The same source indicates that less than 100 Surnames encompass probably 90 percent of the population of Wales at that time. Even though Wales contributed only 6. 5 percent of the combined population of England and Wales, above 10 names all feature in their top 50, along with typically Welsh Edwards, Harris, James, Price and Phillips. Wales, as well as several European countries, were largely rural with low population density well into the 19th century. Its people were identified by give name and their affiliation to family, usually their fathers, known as the patronymic system. By comparison, England had developed towns and bureaucracy which necessitated adoption of hereditary fixed Surnames between 12 and 15 centuries. Over half these names were locational, some had occupational and nicknames, and others retained patronymic forms. In Wales, much importance in law was attached to pedigree aspects of the traditional patronymic naming system, which provides another reason for its tenacity. When standard surnames were found to be necessary, sometimes as late as the 19th century, Welsh usually chose either one now in use or sometimes their grandfather's name. These give names were those fashionable during the generation before surnames were Take, and do not come close to representing the much more varied mediaeval Welsh name set. Thus, we find many Welsh patronymics derive from give names introduced by Normans, and fewer truly Welsh ones like Llywelyn, Madog and Rhys. Only a few adopt surnames from places, nicknames or occupations occur in Wales. Townsmen and those living close to the English border adopt Surnames earlier in time than rural folk, thus they are derived from an older set of fashionable give names. A much smaller proportion of women give rise to surnames, most being those derived from English give names popular in Wales at time, But genuine Welsh metronymics include Gwenlan and Gainor / Gainer. A useful feature of countries using patronymics is that wives retain their own patronymic name after marriage, even in English - speaking areas of Wales. After all, their husbands do not have true Surnames to give them! Importantly for researcher, it is far easier to identify the couple, Evan ap Morgan and Gwenllian Verch Hywel, than to search for Evan and Gwenllian Morgan. Practice was still seen informally in some areas into the 20th century. This fascinating subject is discussed at length by John Rowlands and Sheila Rowlands, who provide excellent bibliography.
