Noble surnames, such as Vichot, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Vichot, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Bourgoine. 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. The Vichot family originally lived in Vichy, in the province of Bourgoigne.
