As with many French family names, the distinguished surname Matheaux is rich in ancient heritage. 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 name Matheaux is derived from the Hebrew Biblical given name Matityahu (Matthew), meaning gift of God.

Matheaux Early Origins



The surname Matheaux was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France where the family has held a family seat since early times.
