As a result of linguistic and cultural influences, the name Ouellette is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Oueilly, Oueilly, Ouilly, Ouele, Oueillade, Willet, Willett, Williot, Wille, Willette, Willi, Oulette, Ouellet, Oullett, Wellett, Oullette and others. It was first found in Normandy where this distinguished family were anciently seated in the honor of the Lord of Ouilly-le-Basset in the canton of alaise in Calvados, which lies just west of Falaise, which was famous in World War II for being the place where a big piece of the German army was surrounded and forced to surrender. Refer to the above maps. The crosses in the bigger map indicate places where our ancestors lived.
