The noble French surname Bordeaux is local in origin, being one of those names derived from the place where a man once lived or where he once held land. The surname Bordeaux may be derived from the French word "borde" which means "small farm." Thus, the bearers of the name Bordeaux were those who "hailed from Bordeaux."

Bordeaux Early Origins



The surname Bordeaux was first found in the northern region of Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where the family was influential, and held many estates and lands. As well as being well established in Normandy, bearers of the name were also present in the early Middle Ages in the province of Guyenne in the city of Bordeaux, from which the family likely derived their surname.
