Acadian Sites

In French Canada some identifying names became surnames. In France, de
or d' implies land ownership (though often tiny areas) so you may find
your ancestor wound up with the name of a locality in France for a
surname that has been handed down.

French soldiers often had nicknames or noms de guerre, which were passed
down to descendants. Settlers sometimes were identified by their French
province of origin or some personal  trait. The term usually found in
Quebec is dit -- meaning "called." Sometimes  alias is used instead of
dit. Dit names can complicate your research, but sometimes they can help
you identify your ancestors.
