Payan Spelling Variations



French surnames were subject to numerous spelling alterations depending on the region and time it was used. The early development of the French language relied heavily on borrowing elements and grammar from other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Payan is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Payan, Payen, Payon, Payont, Payond, Payons, Paian, Paien, Paion, Paiont, Paions, Pagan, Pagant, Pagani, Payani, Payhani and many more.
