During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Vacion 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 Vacion 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 Vacion was an occupational name for a cowherd. Originally the name Vacion was derived from the Old French word vache, meaning cow.

Vacion Early Origins



The surname Vacion 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.
