A Prussian Mennonite name of Dutch or Flemish background, Loewen appeared in the church record of Danzig as early as 1676. This name was found also in Tiegenhagen, Ladekopp, Rosenort, Fürstenwerder, Heubuden, Elbing, and Königsberg. From Danzig and Prussia the name was transplanted to Russia, Canada, the United States and South America. Some of the outstanding leaders in Russia and Canada were Daniel J. Loewen, Gerhard Loewen, and Jacob A. Loewen.
