Name Meaning

Probably a respelling of French Romain, from a personal name (feminine Romaine) meaning ‘Roman’ (Latin Romanus), which was borne by two martyrs and a 7th century bishop of Rouen. The surname has been long established in French-speaking Belgium and England (also written Romayn(e)), whence it may also have been brought to the U.S.
