Dumond History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The enchanting region of Bourgoigne was the historical homeland of the prominent surname Dumond. Dumond is a topographic surname, which is a type of hereditary surname. These were given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other 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 Dumond 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.
