Noble surnames, such as Delaporte, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Delaporte, 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 Delaporte family originally lived near a door or gate of particular interest, such as the gates to a fortified city or a unusually large or unique door. The name Delaporte is derived from the Old French words "la" and "porte," which mean "the" and "door" respectively.

Delaporte Early Origins



The surname Delaporte was first found in Berry, a former province until 1790 when it became a region in central France where this distinguished family held a family seat in d'Ysserteux, and were members of the aristocratic families of the region. In the same region of Berry they also branched to Riants.
