Moody family crestThe English and Irish surname Moody is a nickname for a courageous, arrogant, or foolhardy person, or one quickly moved to anger, from Middle English modie meaning “impetuous, haughty, or angry.” The name has been in Ireland since the 13th Century and is most frequently found in county Wicklow in the East and counties Antrim and Derry in the North. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Alwine Modi, which was dated 1100, in "Old English Bynames", Devonshire. One Symon Moody was an early emigrant to the New World colonies, leaving London on the "Globe" in August 1635, bound for Virginia.
