• On Wikipedia, the origin name of La Louvre wasn’t listed. However, it was listed on a German website dedicated to POW Camps. The word Louvre is a Frenchified verison of the word Louvor from Lower Saxony Languages. It means “Fortified Camp”. The word Louvor is the name given to German-French prisoner of war camps, which are heavily fortified (hence why it’s known as Fortified Camp). - Source: Warren Woodhouse
