Name Meaning

English (of Norman origin): from a Norman French personal name Dreus based on ancient Germanic Drogo, the name of one of the sons of Charlemagne (compare Gothic driugan ‘to serve as a soldier’). In Old French this name became Dreus, Drues (nominative) and Dru, Driu, Dreu (accusative) and was introduced to England by the Normans. For further information about this name, see also Montague .

English: from the personal name Drew, a pet form of Andrew which was confused with the same name of Old French origin (see 1 above).

Irish: when not an adoption of the English surname, a shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac an Druaidh or Ó Druaidh or Ó Draoi ‘son’ and ‘descendant of the druid’, from draoi ‘druid’, genitive druadh or draoi. All of these were often Anglicized as Drury .
