Is your name Sovie, Sova, or Sauvie…?


Then write me a comment and I will get in touch…

You are too shy?

Then come back tomorrow.

You won’t regret it…

Honoré, my beloved husband, what’s he talking about…?

  1. Parfait Pierre, on vient d’enclencher le processus qui me fait penser à OYÉ, OYÉ, à tous les gens s’appelant Sovie, Sova ou Sauvé… une grande révélation s’en vient.

  2. Why does everyone spell their surname any old way once they hit North America?
    It makes tracing lineage even trickier.
    I feel certain my original surname is Graton not Gratton.
    But I think it is so cool that Jerry, a French-Canadian, fought in the States’ Civil War.
    I wonder why?
    The Sauvés?
    I dunno anyone by that surname, but I feel strongly that Madame Sauve, the round lady in the portrait above, was the foundress of the patissiere Dunkin Donuts in the twentieth century.
    This makes me feel veneration.
    I adore her chocolate glazed cinfections.

  3. Hi Mac,

    I agree with you about the changes in surnames… But we can’t change that.
    Moreover in the beginning they would give people a dit name…

    It’s like André Mignier. Since he was a soldier carrying a musket, they called him La Gâchette which became Lagacé…

    So going from Graton to Gratton is not a big deal.

    Also, what are chocolate glazed cinfections???

  4. Woops I can’t spell in French or English and certainement je ne type pas non plus.
    But I meant confections.
    I love chocolate glazed donuts and I think Madame Sauvé looks like she invented them and ate them as they came out of her oven.
    A donut in the morning trumps a beer every day.
    Who knows maybe le famille Sauvé drank beer with their donuts.
    It could have happened.
    I think the patisserie fameux in the States, named Dunkin Donuts, that serves 100s of kinds of donuts and pastries has to have a French-Canadian heritage.
    We’re French aay, we invented ice cream and éclairs, why not donuts?

  5. Also a lot of women never know what their men are talking about. Men mumble so we won’t know and can later claim, “That is not what I was talking about!” Old Honoré here, he looks a first-class mumbler to me.

  6. It is funny that you talk about some people changing their last names to reflect their ancestors.

    My mother and my Aunt has legally changed their last name to “Von Brunk” from Brunk, based on that my maternal great Grandfather came from Germany/Prussia and it was then that they dropped the “Von”

    It is a slight tiff I have with my mother and Aunt, as I have told them (as I am the only one that has done deep research on the family, other then the notes that my Grandfather left us) there is no “Von Brunk” in the family in all the documentation that I have found even three generation into the family starting from my Grandfather. LOL

    I just think people do it to make them feel special as well as connected to their past even if they don’t know it like some of the genealogy hunters, like us.


    • Hi Odette,

      It is so funny how people sometimes make up things. I know for a fact the Julie Leroux had German ancestors. I will talk about it on my blog.


  7. Can you provide an e-mail address for Odette Clouthier or let her know that her uncle Larry is trying to make contact with her. Thanks
