In Reply to: origin of surname by Loizou of 500

I too have been trying to find out about my surname. It has been pointed out many times that it is similar to the French word, L'Oiseau -meaning the Bird, and perhaps it is. It could have been passed on from the royal Lusignan French in medieval Cyprus. If someone knows any more , I would love to find out
