Meaning & History

My family surname originated in southern French-speaking Belgium. There is a tiny village called Gonzeville in northern France near the Belgian border which you can find on Wikipedia. Many surnames from French speaking Belgium have 5 or 6 letters and end in -ze, such as Gonze and Meeze. Numerous Belgian towns end with -ze, such as Deinze, Erezee, Hoffalize, Leuze, and Wanze.
