Remy Name Meaning

French (Rémy) and Swiss German: from a medieval personal name which represents a falling together of two distinct Latin names: Remigius (a derivative of remex, genitive remigis, ‘rower, oarsman’), and Remedius (from remedium ‘cure’, ‘remedy’). The former name was borne by a 6th-century bishop of Rheims; the latter was borne by various minor saints of the 8th to 10th centuries.
