    Name Meaning

    English (Yorkshire): from the Middle English personal name Spivi, of unexplained etymology. There is a slight possibility that it could be a pet form of ancient Germanic Spirwig, attested in the patronymic of a Norman tenant, Eudo filius Spireuuic, 1086 in Domesday Book (Lincolnshire). The alteration of Spivey to Spib(e)y, as if it were from a placename, seems to occurs from the 15th century, but the letters -v- and -b- are often difficult to distinguish at this time and during the following century, so the phonetic change may have occurred later.
