David, there is lots of information about the origins of our name on this geneology forum, but basically it comes from the German word Kopf(head) meaning head of a group or clan or possibly people called Copp had large heads or were very clever and/ or lived at the tops of hills!
I am also researching the name and trying to make contact with anyone called Copp in Devon or Cornwall. have no information about French Copps though sorry.
