The prestigious surname Cheveliers originated in the Dauphiné region of the French Alps. The surname Cheveliers is an occupational name, which is a type of hereditary surname. Occupational surnames are derived from the primary occupation held by the original bearer. In this case, it denotes a horseman; the original bearer was probably in the cavalry, though he may have been a breeder of horses. The English word cavalier comes from the same root as this word.

Cheveliers Early Origins



The surname Cheveliers was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where the family has been since ancient times, and is recorded as an ancient family during the 1200's.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Honor et fides
Motto Translation: Honor and fidelity.
