In Reply to: Re: Jacques RACICOT dit LÉVEILLÉ et TIXIER by richard lemaire of 401

Richard, thanks for the response. I am familiar with many different reasons for dit names. I am looking for the specific's of Jacques dit names. For instance I believe TIXIER is pronounced TCA, and historically was an occupational name for a weaver. Did Jacques have weaving skills? LÉVEILLÉ could have been the surname of a family that took Jacques in upon his arrival in New France. The Most common use of a dit name is military service. I have found nothing to indicate that Jacques had any formal military service. When looking at Jette, it shows a great many persons using the dit name LÉVEILLÉ but no reason why. Could LÉVEILLÉ be a place name in France? I suppose we will never know, but I thought it would be interesting to see if anyone else had an idea. Take care.
