Waleran II (or Walram II) ( 1085 – 1139), also called Paganus, probably due to a late baptism, was the Duke of Limburg and Count of Arlon from his father's death in about 1119 until his own twenty years later. He was given the Duchy of Lower Lorraine by Lothair of Supplinburg in 1128 after the latter's accession as King of Germany in 1125.

He was the son of Henry, Duke of Lower Lorraine (1101–1106), and Adelaide of Pottenstein (Adelheid von Botenstein). Henry had been forced to yield the duchy to Godfrey I of Leuven on Henry V's succession, but had kept the ducal title. With the coming of Lothair, Godfrey was forced to yield it to Waleran. Godfrey was not willing to do so and war broke out, especially over disputes about the advocats of the abbey of Sint-Truiden, the Counts of Duras. In 1129, Waleran and the bishop of Liège, Alexandre de Juliers, defeated Godfrey's forces at Wilderen, near Duras, but Brabant and Duras subsequently continued to fight until they came to terms three years later. Though Waleran and Godfrey eventually reconciled, Godfrey continued to use the ducal title.

He married Jutta von Wassenberg sometime between 1107–10, daughter of Gerard I of Guelders. In 1129, Waleran was made forester of Duisbourg. In 1139, Lothair died and Waleran supported Conrad of Hohenstaufen, who was elected. He remained faithful to the new king until his death shortly thereafter. He was succeeded by Godfrey II of Leuven in Lorraine.

Waleran and Jutta had:

  • Henry II, Duke of Limburg (d. Rome, Aug 1167), Count of Arlon from 1139 and Duke of Limburg from 1140
  • Gerhard van Limburg, who married Elizabeth [unknown] and had a child, Gerhard (1148– )
  • Beatrix van Limburg (– 12 July, after 1164), who married Rupert I, Count of Laurenburg (d. before 13 May 1154),
  • Walram van Limburg (d. 5 Jan 1147)
  • a daughter (d. 1150/51) who married Ekbert, Graf von Tecklenburg.
