The enchanting region of Bourgoigne was the historical homeland of the prominent surname Dumoutier. Dumoutier 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 Dumoutier 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.

Dumoutier Early Origins



The surname Dumoutier was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where the family held a family seat from ancient times in the seigniory of St. Jean.
