The long and noble heritage behind the name of Faucheux first began in medieval France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Faucheux family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. The surname Faucheux was an occupational name for a reaper or mower, or a maker of scythes deriving from the Old French word "fauche," which meant "scythe."

Faucheux Early Origins



The surname Faucheux was first found in Périgord, where this illustrious family held a family seat since ancient times.
