Meaning & History

A combination of the Welsh adjective 'hy', meaning 'bold' or 'presumptuous' and the common Welsh personal name 'Rhys'. This surname is common in South Wales and the English West Country and has an official Welsh tartan. Harris is often mistaken for a Scottish or Irish surname, most likely due to the Scottish Isle of Harris, which has no known relation to the common Welsh surname.
