The prestigious French surname Thibodeau is a proud sign of a rich and dynamic ancestry.The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. They derive from the language of the Visigoths, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The surname Thibodeau was originally derived from the Old French personal name of Theobald meaning bold or brave.

Thibodeau Early Origins



The surname Thibodeau was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France where they held a family seat and functioned as officers of the mounted constabulary (Maréchaussés) of Bourgogne and Bresse.
