Noble surnames, such as Desrosiers, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Desrosiers, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Savoie. 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 while names of larger areas usually indicated a former dweller or a very powerful, titled landholder. The Desrosiers family originally lived in the province of Savoie.

Desrosiers Early Origins



The surname Desrosiers was first found in Savoy (French: Savoie) in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps, where this eminent family held a family seat since ancient times.
