    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name from Middle English day(e), dey(e) ‘dairyman or dairymaid’. Originally used only of women, it was later used of men with the sense ‘man in charge of the dairy cattle’. This is probably the most common source of the surname.

    English: from the Middle English personal name Day(e) or Dey. In western England this is probably a pet form of David , but in northern England and perhaps elsewhere also it is a late Middle English variant of Daw, a pet form of Ralph (see Daw , Dakin ).

    Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Deaghaidh (see O'Dea ).
