    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: French Alcide, Jacques, Marcel, Alain, Armand, Aurele, Emile, Laure, Lucienne, Michel, Monique, Pierre.

    French (Lécuyer): status name, with fused definite article l', from écuyer ‘squire’, a term originally meaning ‘shield-bearer’ (from Latin scutarius, a derivative of scutum ‘shield’). This became a status name for a man belonging to the social rank immediately below that of knight. In North America the surname was sometimes translated into English as Cook ; the original term écuyer having lost transparency of meaning, it was taken as a noun derivative of the verb cuire ‘to cook’. Compare Lagoy and Lequire .

    History: This surname is listed in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors (in the forms L'Écuyer, L'Escuyer, L'Esquier, and Lequer) and also in the similar register of the Huguenot Society of America (in the form L'Escuyer).
