Galant Family History

Galant Name Meaning
French: nickname for a cheerful or high-spirited person, from galant, the present participle of Old French galer ‘to be in good humor’, ‘enjoy oneself’, a word of Germanic origin (see Gale 1 and Gaillard). The meanings ‘gallant’ and ‘attentive to women’ are later developments, which may lie behind some examples of the surname.
