Bombard History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Bombard was originally a nickname, which was later adopted as a surname. Bombard is derived from the Old French words "bon," which means "good," and "par," which means "equal fellow." Thus, it was a nickname for a good friend or companion. Originally, the French people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in France is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames; these usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name.
