The majestic country of France is the ancestral homeland of the distinguished surname Lendres.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. The name Lendres is derived from the ancient Greek name Andreas, which means manly.

Lendres Early Origins
