Noble surnames, such as Aude, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Aude, which is a local
surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Savoie
. 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 Aude family derived their surname from the name of the city of Audeville in Savoie.
Early Origins of the Aude family
The surname Aude was first found in Savoy (French: Savoie) in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps. The Odette variant probably originated in D'Audeville in the commune de Loiret, arrondisement of Pithiviers. CITATION[CLOSE]
