An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The surname Blanchett is derived from the word "blanc," which is French for white. It was no doubt originally given to someone either because of their blond hair or because of a reputation for purity and piety, and as such is classed as a nickname surname. Nicknames were derived from a wide variety of characteristics that would have been associated with the first person who used the name.

Blanchett Early Origins



The surname Blanchett was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy. The Duchy of Normandy was firmly established after the year 911 when Rollo, Earl of Orkney invaded the territory. Rollo became the first Duke of Normandy.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Sans tache
Motto Translation: Without stain.
