Noble surnames, such as Rosier, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Rosier, 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 while names of larger areas usually indicated a former dweller or a very powerful, titled landholder. The Rosier family originally lived in the province of Savoie.

Rosier Early Origins



The surname Rosier was first found in Savoy (French: Savoie) in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps, where this eminent family held a family seat since ancient times.
