Origins Available: French, Italian
local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came. The name Demonte is derived from the Old French word mont, which means mountain or hill, and indicates that the original bearer lived at or near such a landmark.
