Lau Genealogy & History

Lau is a German and Chinese surname, coming in the former case from the Old German lowe, meaning lion, and becoming a surname by a few routes. It might have been a nickname for someone particularly brave and tough, or quite lacking in those qualities; more likely, it was used for people living or working at houses labeled with the lion, particularly inns. Lau family history comes to the New World with Christian Lau, who sailed to Pennsylvania in 1732. Lau genealogy boasts of a few noteworthy members, such as former Israel and current Tel Aviv Chief Rabbi Yisrael Lau and Hong Kong producer/director Andrew Lau.
