Noble surnames, such as De bourbon, evoke images of the ancient province of Bourbonnais, which was the most central of all the French Provinces. The original bearer of the name De bourbon, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of France. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The De bourbon family originally lived in a village in Allier, which is now the site of the ruined castle of Bourbon.
The surname De bourbon was first found in Bourbon, where the family was descended from Louis I, Duke of Bourbon (circa 1270-1342).
