Carbonneau History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
From the historical and enchanting region of France emerged a multitude of notable family names, including that of the distinguished Carbonneau 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 Carbonneau surname derives from the Latin root word "carbo"meaning "carbon," or "charcoal" word; " and as such was a nickname for someone with dark hair or a swarthy complexion.
