I think "all beautiful" (or handsome) is right, Toubon ("all good") and Toublanc ("all white") are also French surnames.
Piteaux looks like another version of Piteux, meaning "tender", "kind-hearted", that sort of thing.
I believe Pol is the Breton for Paul, though perhaps not exclusively Breton. Isn't Saint Pol de Leon in Brittany?
