I am researching this family name and my ancestor who was Jean Baptiste Perodeau, born in 1709 in Quebec, Canada. His father was Jean Baptiste Perodeau, born in 1683 in Montchaude, Saintonge, France, and his mother was Antionette Besis. She was born in 1677 in Saintonge, France. I am searching for Jean's siblings, and the meaning of their name in French.
I have another line I am working on of the Popenau family and that name means "parrot" in french, and my Perot line which is french for "pear". I am searching to see if Perodeau is near in meaning to these other names as there may be a family connection between the three. Any information will be appreciated! Thank you,
