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