Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: French Armand, Fernand, Lucien, Normand, Raoul, Adelard, Andre, Laureat, Marcel, Philippe, Serge, Adrien.

French: from a learned variant of Old French pareis ‘Paradise’ (from Greek paradeisos; see below and Paradise ). As a toponym this was applied to verdant places, and it is quite common as a placename in Nord and Normandy; the surname, therefore, can be a topographic or habitational name. Compare Paradee , Paradise , and Parady .

In some cases also an American shortened form of any of various Greek surnames derived from a personal name based on classical Greek paradeisos ‘paradise, pleasure garden’ (see Paradise ).
