This question is not so much about language and grammar, but what I want to know is what could possibly be the origin of these two last names? Loeffler is a fairly common last name, Loeffelmacher is not. Loeffelmacher means "spoon maker" from my translation, I assume Loeffler means something similar.
But there's no possible way spoon-making was a job. Does it imply a person that does woodworking? Or a person who does silversmithing? How about Loeffler?
Or is it possible that there's some cultural significance to spoons which I am not aware of?
