Noble surnames, such as Bournivau, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Bournivau, 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.

Bournivau Early Origins



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