The noble French surname Claude is patronymic in origin, and is derived from the name of the original bearer's father. The surname Claude is a variation of the Latin name Claudius, a Roman family name derived from "claudus" meaning "lame." This name was made popular as a result of having been borne by a seventh century saint who was bishop of Besancon. Thus the surname signifies "the son or descendant of Claude."
