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

Audette Early Origins



The surname Audette 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. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
