Noble surnames, such as Bourgogne, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Bourgogne, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Burgoigne. 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.
