Noble surnames, such as Audet, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Audet, 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 Audet family derived their surname from the name of the city of Audeville in Savoie.

Audet Early Origins



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