"Dit" is from the verb Dire = to say. Des Forges dit Picardie translated to English means Des Forges called Picardie. Your name is Robert but you are called Mike. It's a nickname. All French soldiers had to choose one is what I have been told. Fortunately for his descendants, Robert Des Forges can be traced back to the Picardie region of France due to this choice.
