Delalande History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Normandy is the region of ancient France from which the name Delalande was derived. It comes from when the family lived at Landes in Normandy. However, the name Lalonde is adapted from a word indicating a house beside the moor.


Early Origins of the Delalande family


The surname Delalande was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where they held a family seat from ancient times in a village and seigneurie in Seine-Inférieure in the arrondisement of Rouen. The family was ennobled in 1509 and they were later elevated to the baronage in Normandy and to Lords in Brittany (Bretagne), Forez, Poitou, and Quercy. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Delalande Spelling Variations


French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Delalande is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Lalonde, Lalondes, La Londe, Lalande, La Lande, de Lalonde, des Lalondes, de Lalonde, de Lalande and many more.
