During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Vachout was first used in France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Vachout family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Vachout was an occupational name for a cowherd. Originally the name Vachout was derived from the Old French word vache, meaning cow.

Vachout Early Origins



The surname Vachout was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where this eminent family held a family seat in the honor of the seigneurie of St. Etienne.
