Massey is a name of English and Scottish heritage, it evolved from Maccius (pronounced MAX-ee-us, yeah, how cool is that) which is a Latin name.

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.

The French variation Massé is also very interesting. It should be noted that popular, modern option Macy originates from these names as well.
