Noble surnames, such as Courcele, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Courcele, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Bourgogne. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, and names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Courcele family originally derived its surname from the place named Courcelles, in the province of Bourgogne.

Courcele Early Origins



The surname Courcele was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where this distinguished family has held a family seat since ancient times.
