Noble surnames, such as Bourgogne, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people.

In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Bourgogne family originally lived in the province of Burgoigne, known in the English speaking world as Burgundy.
