Bombarde History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Bombarde was originally a nickname, which was later adopted as a surname. Bombarde 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.

Early Origins of the Bombarde family


The surname Bombarde was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where a family of this name has been found since early times. The family were well established in the region of Dijonnais and several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contributions toward the community in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility.
