Perhaps these names are like "dit" names in French?? EG, Volaire is a dit name for François-Marie Arouet. In France, they were common among literary figures.But in French Canada, they were quite common to differentiate all those Jeans & Pierres. The tricky part is that sometimes a Charbonneau son would use as his dit name " Merlot", an actual family name, with whom he was not related to by blood... Makes for interesting tracking down through the generations!KMC
