In my searching for the meaning of this surname, I found that it is considered rare. However, this board seems to prove otherwise.
In your searches for your family histories, has anyone came across a meaning to the surname "Plourde"? If so, could you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org? I'm searching for a friend. Someone found the origin of the name came from a rebellious son who changed his name from our de pl to plourde to break away from his father. Has anyone found that yet?
If this isn't the place to search for this information, could you point me in the right direction?
