Almy Family History

Almy Surname Meaning

English (of Norman origin): variant of Almey perhaps from the Old French personal name Almay Latin Almedius. The Latin form of the name is recorded in France in the early 9th century but its rarity there and its absence from post-Conquest English records make it an uncertain source of the English surname.
