Odette History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Noble surnames, such as Odette, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Odette, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Savoie. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Odette family derived their surname from the name of the city of Audeville in Savoie.

Early Origins of the Odette family


The surname Odette was first found in Savoy (French: Savoie) in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps. The Odette variant probably originated in D'Audeville in the commune de Loiret, arrondisement of Pithiviers. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
