In French, the meaning of Normand is 'people of the North.' It is a term of English pronunciation used to represent masculine identity. Also, people from Normandy are referred to as Normand in French. In that case, Normand is used as a surname instead of the first name. The name comes with a rich history as its background. It starts in the northern province of Normandy, France, in the French castles and royal families. Before the death of the former Dutch of Normandy, they left the throne to their blood ties, namely William of Grandeur. He was a person of extraordinary heroism and was led to a good refuge in France after the Norman Conquest of England. This was the first time when Normand, as a name, was recorded and gained popularity among the masses around the 1066 era. To this day, instead of using the term Normand as a baby name, parents are choosing alternatives that are shorter versions of the name. Since Normand has a French origin, there are several spelling variations of the name, such as Normant, Le Normand, Le Normant, and Normandie. However, in English-speaking countries, the name Normand could gain more popularity if you pick it for your boy! For the heavy two-syllable accent, the name adds weightage to one's character. In French communities, the name is pretty famous even as a modern name. If not for English provinces, the name holds a rank in French communities' top thousand baby names.
