Similar to many French family names, the distinguished surname St.cyr is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. These personal names were based on the language of the Visigoths, a Germanic tribe that controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The surname St.cyr is derived from the popular Old French given name Siefert, meaning victory.

St.cyr Early Origins



The surname St.cyr was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie) in northern France, where this family was established in ancient times.
