Noble surnames, such as Berubee, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Berubee, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Lorraine. 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 Berubee family originally lived at the town of Paresse or Parez, in the Lorraine. Although one would at first assume that the name is derived from the city of Paris, evidence suggests that the names of both the town in the Lorraine and the French capital are derived from a Gaulish tribe called the Parisii.


The surname Berubee was first found in Lorraine, where the family was established in early times.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Bérulle, Bérullé, Bérullet, Bérulley, Bérubé, Bérubbé, Berrubé, Bérubée, Bérubbée, Bérubey, Bérubbey, Bérubet, Bérubbet, Bérubez, Bérubbez and many more.
