Maison Name Meaning

French: probably a topographic name for someone who lived by an important house, Old French maison, from Latin mansio ‘posting house’, ‘stage’ ‘halting place’ (on a route). However, the centers of distribution in the U.S. (OH, PA, and NY) suggest that it is perhaps more likely to be an altered spelling of Mason.
