The prestigious French surname Albair is a proud sign of a rich and dynamic ancestry.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 Franks, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The name Albair is derived from the given name Albert, which is itself derived from the Germanic personal name Albrecht. The name Albrecht means noble and bright and it was borne by numerous medieval princes, churchmen and military leaders.
