RAMEY Family History
This surname can truly be described as international, in that it is recorded in its various relevant spellings in every European country. These spelling forms include Ram, Ramm, Ramas, Ramos, Rampling, Ramard, and many other diminutive forms. To add to the confusion there are three quite separate meanings and origins, which may or may not, mean the samething in each different country! In general the surnames Ram, Ramm and Ramme were originally nicknames for a lusty man, although it may also refer to a shepherd, or possibly somebody who lived at an inn with the sign of the Ram.
