Early Origins of the Pepin family


The surname Pepin was first found in Normandy where they claim descent from the founders of the Carolingian monarchy, Pepin d'Heristal (c. 635-714), and Pepin le Bref (Pippin the Younger.) Both claim descent from Pepin I (also Peppin, Pipin, or Pippin) of Landen (c. 580-640), also called Pepin the Elder or the Old, was the Mayor of the Palace of Austrasia from 623 to 629.

Pepin Spelling Variations


Huguenot surnames were only slightly Anglicized, and they remain to this day a distinct group of surnames in England. Nevertheless, Huguenot surnames have been subject to numerous spelling alterations since the names emerged in France. French surnames have a variety of spelling variations because the French language has changed drastically over the centuries. French was developed from the vernacular Latin of the Roman Empire. It is divided into three historic and linguistic periods: Old French, which developed before the 14th century; Middle French, which was used between the 14th and 16th centuries; and Modern French, which was used after the 16th century and continues to be in use today. In all of these periods, the French language was heavily influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when the 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. Huguenot names have numerous variations. The name may be spelled Pepys, Pippin, Pippy, Pepin and others.

The Pepin 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: Mens cujusque is est quisque
Motto Translation: As the mind of each, so is the man.
