Meaning & Origins

One of the most enduringly successful of the Old French personal names introduced into Britain by the Normans. It is of Germanic (Frankish) origin, derived from rīc ‘power’ + hard ‘strong, hardy’. It has enjoyed continuous popularity in England from the Conquest to the present day, influenced by the fact that it was borne by three kings of England, in particular Richard I (1157–99). He was king for only ten years (1189–99), most of which he spent in warfare abroad, taking part in the Third Crusade and costing the people of England considerable sums in taxes. Nevertheless, he achieved the status of a folk hero, and was never in England long enough to disappoint popular faith in his goodness and justice. He was also Duke of Aquitaine and Normandy and Count of Anjou, fiefs which he held at a time of maximum English expansion in France. His exploits as a leader of the Third Crusade earned him the nickname ‘Coeur de Lion’ or ‘Lionheart’ and a permanent place in popular imagination, in which he was even more firmly enshrined by Sir Walter Scott's novel Ivanhoe (1820).
8th in the U.S.
German and English: from Middle High German ram, Middle English ram(m) ‘ram’, ‘male sheep’, hence a nickname for a forceful or lusty individual (in the case of the English name, perhaps in part representing a continued use of an Old English byname). It may also occasionally have been a metonymic occupational name for a shepherd, or a habitational name for someone who lived at a house distinguished by the sign of a ram. The German term also denotes a pile-driver or battering ram, and the surname may have arisen as an occupational name for someone who operated either of these.
