The origins the old family name Forget can be found within 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 Forget family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Forget was an occupational name for someone who worked at a forge or smithy. The surname Forget was originally derived from the word "forge," which in turn derives from the Latin "fabrica," which means "workshop."

Forget Early Origins
