The prestigious surname Villines comes from the region of Provence, in France. The surname Villines is of local origin, and is therefore a type of hereditary surname. Local surnames are derived either from an already existing place-name or from a local feature of the geography. In this case, it is derived from the Old French elements ville, which meant farm, and neuve, which meant new. The surname then means "dweller on the new farm."

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Victori et fideli
Motto Translation: Victory and Faithfulness.
