During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Colombat was first used in France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Colombat family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Colombat was an occupational name for a keeper of doves or pigeons having derived from the Old French word "colombe," which means dove.

Colombat Early Origins



The surname Colombat was first found in Guyenne, where this distinguished family held a family seat since the 1100's.
