Re: Origin of the name LAJOUS #france

Bernard Flam

Hi from Paris,
According to various French genealogical web sites, "Lajous" is a rare name, only 560 persons born since 1890, mainly in South West counties near Pyrennées mountains and Spanich border.
From "La jus", name given in a mountain village to the house located below the village; as a nickname, applies to the inhabitant of this house.
