Noble surnames, such as Munier, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The Munier surname may be a local surname, that is, a name derived from the name of a place where they once lived, or held land. The Munier family name is thought to have derived from Meunet, a town in the department of Indre, in the district of Issoudun. It has also been suggested that Munier may have been an occupational name for a miller, deriving from the word "meunier" or "mounier," in Old French.

Munier Early Origins



The surname Munier was first found in Berry, a former province until 1790 when it became a region in central France where this ancient family held a family seat since early times.
