Dabney boy

First name origin & meaning:

French: From Aubigny, France

First name variations: Dabnee, Dabnie, Dabny

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English (of both Norman and Huguenot origin): altered form of French d’Aubigné, a habitational name for someone from any of the various places in northern France called Aubigny or Aubigné, named with the Romano-Gallic personal name Albinius (a derivative of Latin albus ‘white’; compare Alban and Albin) + the locative suffix -acum.
  2. American Dabneys are probably mostly descended from Cornelius Dabney or d’Aubigné, a Huguenot who came to VA in the early 18th century, after a considerable residence in England.
