From the historical and enchanting region of France emerged a multitude of notable family names, including that of the distinguished Bonnot family. Originally, the people in this region went by one (personal) name. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. These names then began to become "fixed" or hereditary between the generations. One of the types of names adopted as surnames were those derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name, and generally reflected some physical characteristics or other attribute of the first person that used the name. The Bonnot surname derives from the Old French term of endearment "bonye," meaning "the good little one." It has also been suggested that the surname stems from the medieval personal name Bonellus.
