Bunce Family HistoryThis unusual and interesting surname is of Old French and Anglo-Saxon origin, and has two possible sources, each with its own derivation and meaning. Firstly, it may be Norman-French, and derives from a nickname for a "good" person, from the Old French "bon", good, itself from the Latin "bonus". The name was introduced into England after the Norman Conquest of 1066, and may have been bestowed in a complimentary or ironic sense on a "good" person. The second possible source is also from a nickname, which is found recorded mainly in the north of England, as "Bain", and was given to an exceptionally tall, lean person.
