Swedish Varvade Regiments, regular infantry regiments, assume the name of the enabler, colonel-propritor. The enabler was a noble who raised and many cases lead the regiments and was later reimbursed by the crown. This practice was common amongst the European Nobles.

In this case I can tell you that during the Seven Years War period the 31st Infantry Regiment raised in approximately 1756 by a Noble named Lowenfelska or Lowenfel depending on the documentation. I believe the regiment was decommissioned in 1762 or so.
