Chaussee Name Meaning
French (Chaussée): topographic name for someone who lived by a paved road, French chaussée, a relatively rare feature of the medieval countryside. The term is from Latin (via) calciata ‘limed (way)’, from calx ‘chalk’, ‘limestone’, genitive calcis. This word has also been used in naming a number of French villages, and the surname may be a habitational name from any one of these.
