    Name Meaning

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 ).
