About the Luria surname

Lurie is a Jewish surname. Neil Rosenstein's "The Lurie Legacy: The House of Davidic Royal Descent" traces the genealogy of the Lurie/Luria surname.

The name is sometimes transliterated from/to other languages as Lurye, Luriye (from Russian), Lourié (in French).

Other variants include: Luria, Luri, Laurie, Lourie, Laurier

"Among families which claim descent from biblical King David, problaby the one with most authenticity is that of the Lurie family. Also the most prominent of all Ashkenazic Jewish rabbinical families, Lurie probably traces its origins to 13th- or 14th-century France. Although opinions differ as to the exact origin of the name, it is more likely that it is traceable to the town of Loire, on the Rhone River."
