Origin of the name DURAND.
Etymology of the name DURAND.
Meaning of the baby name DURAND.

  

DURAND.  French name, derived from Latin Durandus (q.v.), meaning "enduring, lasting."  The Spanish have Durán; the Italians, Dante and Durante.

... Durand, to our surprise, figures constantly in Domesday Book, probably having belonged to French immigrants.  A Durand and Marta, who jointly owned a house at Winchester in the reign of Stephen, were almost certainly Provençal, since St. Martha was hardly known except in the scene of her exploit with the dragon.  Durand Grimbald is a specimen of a French Christian and English surname then prevailing. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
