    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog 'A long late summer hike' and your excellent suggestion to explain the names of the places... I'll add this information in my blog!
    When there is 'sur' in a name, like Vaux-sur-Seine or Tessancourt-sur-Aubette or Gaillon-sur-Montcient (there were several this time indeed), it means by a river: by the Seine, by the Aubette, by the Montcient. Often these villages were only called 'Vaux' or 'Tessancourt' at first, but the name of the nearby river was added so that their name becomes different from another town with a similar name in France. For example there is another Gaillon in Normandy, and it was only fairly recently that the Gaillon I saw this Sunday became Gaillon-sur-Montcient.
    - In the Middle Ages, the word which later evolved into 'GAILLON' apparently meant 'fording', i.e. crossing the water, the river.
    - As for Vaux-sur-Seine, VAUX comes from the Latin word 'vallis', which means 'valley'.
    - EVECQUEMONT comes again from two Latin words, 'Episcopi Mons', the episcopal mount. because there used to be a Benedictine priory.
    - TESSANCOURT, which first appears in documents in 1056 under the name 'Taissuncort', comes from two German words that mean: Tasso's Court. So apparently a German chief must have lived there with its court. There were lots of invasions at the time.
    - OINVILLE comes from 2 German words and means Audowin's Estate, Audowin being clearly a German chief again...

    I have to thank Wikipedia for all this information! Thank you so much as, thanks to you, I learn much today!
