The name Charbonnel was first seen in France in the area called Gascogne. It was a name for a person with dark hair or a dark complexion. Looking back further, we find the name Charbonnel was originally derived from the Latin word "carbonis," which means charcoal.

Charbonnel Early Origins



The surname Charbonnel was first found in Gascony (French: Gascogne), an area of southwest France bordering Spain, that was part of the "Province of Guyenne and Gascony" prior to the French Revolution, where the family has held a family seat since very early times.

Charbonnel Spelling Variations



French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Charbonnel is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Carbonnel, Carbonel, Carbonelle, Carbonèle, Charbonnel, Charbonel, Charbonelle, Charbonèle, Carbonell, Carbonnell, Charbonell, Charbonnell, Carbonnèle, Charbonèle, Charbonnèle, Charbonnel, Charbonnelle, Charbonal, Carbonal, Charbonale, Carbonale, Charbonnal, Carbonale, Charbonall, Carbonall, Carbonnale, Carbonalle and many more.
