Meaning: Gift of God Origin: English, Scottish
Villiages and regions in France came to be named Massy or sometimes Mascy, as a result of settlers in the area named Maccius or Matheus. Massey was a surname used to denote families from these places.
Maccius ultimately derives from Matthew – which means: Gift of God.
I particularly like Massey as it reminds me of large farm machinery made by Massey Ferguson, and of a paddle steamer captain I once met.
