Couvillion : Official Travel Source

In the 1700s, Acadians were forced from their homes in Nova Scotia and traveled all the way down to Southwest Louisiana. As they integrated with the native people of the area, their name slowly transformed into "cajuns". This is the same for Couvillion, a close relative to the French dish court bouillon. Through local influences and regional style, it became courtbouillion, then coubion-- until eventually French areas of Louisiana began calling it Couvillion.
