It could be from a number of things ...anything from English, French, Irish, Scottish, etc. ...Ultimately it has it's roots in "Rex, Reg or Roy" in Latin meaning "king" ...

Just a guess, but I'd say gathering where your from and the history associated with it that the name likely came from the Norman-French to England and then over to the States during the colonization period.
