Mireau History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The French surname Mireau is occupational in origin, as it is derived from the work a man did or the profession he pursued. In this case, the name can be traced to the French word "amiral," which means, quite simply, "admiral," a respectful seafaring profession. Thus, the original bearer of the name may have been a sea captain, an admiral. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
