DY Family History

This interesting name derives from "Dye", itself a pet form of the Medieval English female given name Dionisia, from the Greek Dionysia (feminine) or Dionysios (masculine) meaning "the Divine One of Nysa", (a holy mountain in modern Afghanistan). Dye (without surname) is first recorded in the 1301 "Subsidy Rolls of Yorkshire". The surname from this source also appears in the early half of the 14th Century, (see below). Variant forms Dy and Dei are recorded in the 1379 "Poll Tax Returns of Yorkshire".
