Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Québec from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.

  • 'Antoine Dionne and Catherine Ivory arrived in Canada about 1661. The Dionne brothers, Jean and Antoine, came to New France together. They bore the family name Guyonne and the surname Sansoucy... We are even ignorant as to the names of their parents and of the French province of their origin. As for their name, Guyonne, it was changed very quickly to Dionne.'
