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.

The name lacourtois was first found in Burgundy, where this illustrious family was established in early times in a village in the department of Yonne, in the district of Sens.
