Noble surnames, such as Bournavau, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Bournavau, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Picardy. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate.

Bournavau Early Origins



The surname Bournavau was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie) in northern France, where the family had been established in early times.
