Money History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The prominent surname Money originated in France, a country which has been a dominant presence in world affairs for centuries.The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name.The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. They derive from the language of the Visigoths, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The family name Monet is a shortened form of either of two Old French given names, Hamon and Emon.

Early Origins of the Money family

The surname Money was first found in Savoy (French: Savoie) in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps, where the family held a family seat from ancient times.

Over the course of many centuries, this family branched, prospered and expanded to many regions where members of the family adapted to the cultural and linguistic changes in these regions and also became active citizens defending their beliefs, their King, and their country. This ancient family name is registered at Abondance in 1649.

A famous member of the family, Claude Monet, was a French painter during the 18- and 1900's. Claude was fascinated by the reflection of light off the water and his painting "Impression, soleil levant " (1872), inspired a critic to describe him as an "Impressionniste". His home at Giverny remains open to the public as well as the famous garden with the water lilies which he painted so frequently.
