Noble surnames, such as Chaplet, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Chaplet, which is a local
surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Lorraine
. 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. The Chaplet family originally lived at the town of Paresse or Parez, in the Lorraine. Although one would at first assume that the name is derived from the city of Paris, evidence suggests that the names of both the town in the Lorraine
and the French capital are derived from a Gaulish tribe called the Parisii.
