The prestigious surname Pascail comes from the Dauphiné region in the French Alps. The surname Pascail is a patronymic surname, a type of hereditary surname, and is derived from the personal name Pascal, a baptismal name. Patronymic surnames arose out of the vernacular and religious given name traditions. In the religious naming tradition, which was developed later than the vernacular tradition, surnames were bestowed in honor of religious figures or church officials. In Europe, the Christian Church was one of the most powerful influences on the formation of given names. Personal names derived from the names of saints, apostles, biblical figures, and missionaries are widespread in most European countries. In the Middle Ages, they became increasingly popular because people believed that the souls of the deceased continued to be involved in this world. They named their children after saints in the hope that the child would be blessed or protected by the saint. The given name Pascal is derived from the Latin name Pascha, which meant Easter and is in turn derived from the Hebraic name Pesach, which is the Hebrew name for the Passover. There were two saints named Pascal.

Pascail Early Origins



The surname Pascail was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where this distinguished family held a family seat as an aristocratic family in the seigneurie of Mérins. They later intermarried with the distinguished families of Colombier and Satolas.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Spes mea Christus
Motto Translation: Christ is my hope.
