The Dutch surname VAN DER LIP has various derivations, which include a pet form of Philip and other Germanic personal names, a habitation name from the duchy of Lippe and a topographic name for someone living on the banks of the river Lippe in Westphalia, which is of uncertain etymology. It is extremely ancient, being recorded by the Roman historian Tacitus in the form Lupia. Variant spellings include VON DER LIPP, LIPP, VAN LIPPE, LIPPE, LIPA, LIPSIUS, LIPS, LIPEN, LIPGEN, LIPKA and LIEPE. A notable member of this name was JUSTUS LIPSIUS (1547-1606) a Flemish humanist, born in Issche, near Brussels. Professor of classics at Jena, Leiden and Louvain he was successively Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist and once more Catholic, reflecting the turbulent religious climate of the times. He latinized his name from JOSET LIPS, a common practice amongst scholars with an international reputation. Dutchmen who have surnames from towns, cities or districts, are mostly distinguished by the prefix VAN. In the United States the use of capital and initial letters and spaces is optional with the particular family. The Dutch language is most closely related to Low German, and its surnames have been influenced both by German and French naming practices. The preposition 'van' is found especially with habitation names, and the 'de' mainly with nicknames. Compared to other countries, Dutch heraldry is notably simpler, some of the shields bearing only a single charge. Generally speaking one helmet, one shield and one crest has been used, quartering is uncommon and mottoes are rare. The Rose depicted in the arms is used as a distinction for the seventh son. The Distinction of Houses are used to distinguish the younger from the elder branches of a family, and to show from which line each is descended.
