Vallier History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The prestigious surname Vallier comes from the majestic region of Dauphiné, in France. Vallier is a topographic surname, a form of hereditary surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came.

Early Origins of the Vallier family


The surname Vallier was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where they held a family seat and were important members of the aristocracy of that region.
