The Norman name was also taken to Ireland, where it has since flourished in the county of Wexford as Hay and Hayes . Elsewhere in Ireland the name usually has a native Irish origin, see below.English: topographic name from Middle English hay(e), heye, heghe ‘enclosure’ (Old English (ge)hæg) or ‘forest fenced off for hunting’ (Old French haie); or else a habitational name from a place so called, such as Hay (in Herefordshire and Westmorland) or Hey in Scammonden (Yorkshire).
