Origin, Meaning, Family History and Raymond Coat of Arms and Family Crest

Raymond Surname Name Meaning, Origin, History, & Etymology
The main theory regarding the history and origin of this popular last name is that it developed from the Norman-French personal (first) name Raimund, which in turn comes from the Old Germanic or Teutonic masculine given name Raginmund, consisting of the Germanic elements ragin (advice or counsel) and mund (protection). Some assert a literal translation of “mighty protection” or “god-like protection”.  One source claims the original given name was Raimundus, an ancient Christian name.

In his 1903 book, British Family Names: Their Origin and Meaning, author Henry Barber states the following in regard to the Raymond family name: “From the Old Norse, Hrómundr; from the Danish, Reymann; from the Dutch, Reiman; from the German, Rehmann”. Another author, William Arthur, in his 1857 book titled An Etymological Dictionary of Family and Christian Names, believe the etymology is Teutonic in nature, stating “From Rein, pure, and mund, mouth; pure mouth, one who abstains from wanton discourses. Raymund, German, quiet peace”.

In some cases, it is an Americanized spelling of the German surname Raimund. In Ireland, it may also be a spelling variant of the name Redmond.

One source asserts the family came from Languedoc, France and received estates in Devon, England for their support of William the Conqueror during the Norman Invasion of 1086 AD. It is said that in France they were Seigneuries of Toulouse, and were seated at Chantemerle and d’Eoux. They also branches out to Brignon and Modene, becoming Comtes of Modene and eventually Counts of the Empire after the Revolution. They were also Marquis de Lasbordes et de St-Amans and  Marquis de Sallegourde. Lastly, they took root in Agenais and became Comtes de Raymond, and the Viscounts Raymond married with the O’Neills of Ireland.

Hausegenealogy.com asserts the following: “The House of Raymond was originally established by the Franks in the third century in Lauragais, where it held the lands of Saint-Amans and Las-Bordes. Monuments there boast of the family’s military achievements and possessions, and all spring from a count named RAIMOND d’ANGENOIS, in Toulouse. RAYMOND I, the first hereditary count, took over in 852, and his family controlled the land all the way until 1775. But after the Albigensian war and the final destruction of the ancient lordships of Toulouse, many in the Raymond line submitted to new rulers, and became prominent in their governments, especially in the military service of France, where their descendants could still be found in the 19th Century. In France they were seated at Chantemerle, and d’Eoux. A British branch of the family was seated in Devonshire, where they were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. Others in the Raymond clan withdrew to Italy, Germany, and other countries, entered the service of foreign princes, formed alliances and founded more lines of the family. Some eventually traveled across the Atlantic Ocean and settled in French Canada”.
