Meaning & History

Means "son of Ive", a medieval male personal name, brought into England by the Normans but ultimately of Germanic origin, a shortened form of any of a range of compound names beginning with īv "yew" (cf. modern French Yves). This surname was borne by American film director Charles Ives (1874-1954).
