During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Pageau was first used in 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 Pageau 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 Pageau was an occupational name for a young servant to a nobleman who was in the first stage of training for knighthood. Such a servant was known in Old French as a page.

Pageau Early Origins



The surname Pageau was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where the family was anciently seated in a parish, in the department of Isère, in the district of Vienne.
