Meaning & Origins

Roy
Originally a Scottish name, representing an Anglicized spelling of the Gaelic nickname Ruadh ‘red’. It has since spread to other parts of the English-speaking world, where it is often reanalysed as Old French roy ‘king’ (compare Leroy).
199th in the U.S.
English: of much discussed but uncertain origin. 1. It may be from a medieval personal name, but if so the form is unclear. 2. Alternatively, it may be a nickname for a quarrelsome or deceitful person, from Middle English bar(r)et(t)e, bar(r)at ‘trouble’, ‘strife’, ‘deception’, ‘cheating’ (Old French barat ‘commerce’, ‘dealings’, a derivative of barater ‘to haggle’). It is possible that the original sense of barat survived unrecorded into Middle English as a word for a market trader; the Italian cognate Baratta has this sense. It could also be a nickname or metonymic occupational name from Old French barette ‘cap’, ‘bonnet’.
280th in the U.S.
