Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: French Andre, Pierre, Normand, Antoine, Jacques, Alphonse, Leonce, Lucien, Marcel, Damien, Emile, Francois.

French and Walloon (Noël); English: from the Old French personal name Noël, Middle English Noel, from Old French no(u)el ‘Christmas’ (from Latin natalis (dies) ‘birthday’), used for someone born during the Christmas period. Alternatively, a nickname for someone who had some special connection with the Christmas season, such as owing the particular feudal duty of providing a yule-log to the lord of the manor, or having given a memorable performance as the Lord of Misrule. This surname is also found in the Flemish part of Belgium. Compare Christmas and Newell .

English: sometimes a post-medieval variant of Knowle and Knoll (see Knowles ). The loss of /k/ before /n/ is known in everyday speech by the 17th century and may have been earlier.
