Origin of Surname

Le Grand was a nickname derived from the word "graunt", meaning tall or perhaps large, and ultimately from the Latin grandis.

In medieval times it enjoyed much the same family status as in the modern senior or junior, and was used to distinguish between people of the same family name, but of different generations.

This a very common name in Normandy, featuring in the top 20 of the most numerous family names today.
