Ray Family CrestThe English surname Ray, also found in Scotland and Ireland, is of Norman origin. The name Ray is a nickname denoting someone who behaved in a regal fashion or who had earned the title in some contest of skill or by presiding over festivities, from Old French rey, roy meaning “king.” When found in Scotland and Ireland it may be an anglicized form of the Gaelic name McRae. The first recorded reference to the name was in 11279 when Ralph de la Reye is recorded  in the Hundred Rolls of Oxfordshire.
