Etymology[edit]

The commune of France is from Old French Granville, Grandvilla, Grande Villa, Grandivilla, from grant (grand) + ville (settlement). The surname is of Norman baronial origin, from Grainville, a former commune in Normandy, from the given name Guarin + ville, meaning “Guarin's town”. Guarin ultimately derives from Proto-Germanic *warduz (guard).
