The Anglais family's name is derived from that coastal landscape of Medieval France known as Normandy. Their name originated with an early member who was a Norman resident of English extraction. The name Langlois refers to the Angles, a race who once inhabited England, and after whom the country is named. Rendered l'Anglais in modern French, the name essentially means the English.

The surname Anglais was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where this distinguished family held a family seat at Motteville, and were members of the aristocracy of that region.
