Lovel Surname Origin

The original family name of Lovel was, in olden times, Percival, so called from a place in Normandy, until Asceline, its chief, who flourished in the early part of the twelfth century, acquired from his violent temper the soubriquet of Lupus (the Wolf). His son William, Earl of Yvery, was nicknamed Lupellus, the little wolf, which in after times was softened into Lupel, and at last to Luvel or Lovel.

As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worthy of reading,
Or do things worthy of writing.' --Benjamin Franklin, May 1738
