Origins Available: English, French


The long and noble heritage behind the name of Lepage first began in 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 Lepage 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 Lepage was an occupational name for a young servant to a nobleman. Such a position was known by the Old French word "page" and was the first stage in a young man's training for knighthood.

Lepage Early Origins



The surname Lepage was first found in Ile-de-France, where they held a family seat.
