Noble surnames, such as lauson, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name lauson, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful Guyenne region of France. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The lauson family originally lived in the village of Loison.
