Dear Marie
It seems that the original settlers gave themselves nickname, "dit" names. Frequently this appears to have been done when the surname was a place name. For a detailed explanation, go to Norm Brunette's site at http://www.scarolina.com/the-french-canadian-connection/
I have found Associated Geneologist's site a great resource for Sevigny dit Lafleur research,particularly Guy Audoir de Valter's section:

Finally, for a biography of the first Sevigny dit Lafleur (in French) go to:

Good Luck
Ingrid Lafleur Yurchenco
