From the historical and enchanting region of France emerged a multitude of notable family names, including that of the distinguished Chancelier 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 Chancelier surname derives from the Old French word "cheaunce," which means "chance," and as such was likely originally a nickname for a gambler, for a lucky person, or ironically, for an unlucky person.

Chancelier Early Origins



The surname Chancelier was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where this distinguished family has held a family seat since ancient times.
