Abstract : This study tries to contribute to the linguistic geography of France by comparing historical records of surnames in the five departments of Brittany with other geolinguistic resources of the same area. In order to map these data, a new software was developed and applied to the respective data sets. The results show interesting concordances between the distribution of patronyms and isoglosses and/or isophones.
