Toponymy[edit]

Ornézan finds its origin in the Latin patronymic name Ornatius, followed by the suffix -anum, designing a property of which a man named Ornatius must have been the owner in the times of Roman Gaul.[2] The village is later known in Latin as Ornezanus and Ornesan in Gascon, before becoming Ornézan in French.
