The French surname Amirault is of occupational in origin, as it is derived from the work a man did or the profession he pursued. In this case, the name can be traced to the French word "amiral," which means, quite simply, "admiral," a respectful seafaring profession. Thus, the original bearer of the name may have been a sea captain, an admiral.

Amirault Early Origins



The surname Amirault was first found in the southern region of Provence along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
