Origins Available: French, German


The Duret surname evolved from the Old French word "dur," meaning "hard," or "hardy." In some instances the name may have developed from the prefix "de" meaning "son of," as in de Huré becoming Duré.

Duret Early Origins



The surname Duret was first found in Brittany, originally Armorica in ancient times, where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. The family were well established in the region of Dol and several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contributions toward the community in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility. They were anciently the Lords and Counts of Auvergne and Brettagne.
