    Name Meaning

    Welsh and English: variant of Davis , a patronymic equivalent to Welsh ap Dafydd ‘Dafydd's son’. The name is especially numerous in south Wales. This form of the name probably shows the influence of Davy , the common English form of the personal name David in the late medieval and early modern periods (see Davey ).
