Multiple Origins for the Surname Hoy


Scottish


The Hoy surname is a local name derived from the name of the Island of Hoy, written in the 13th as Haey, or "high island." The island of Hoy is the second largest in the Orkneys. There is also thought to have been a place so named near the England- Scotland border, but it no longer exists.

Hoy Early Origins



The surname Hoy was first found in the Island region of Orkney (Gaelic: Insi Orc, “Island of the wild pigs”) the historic northernmost island region of Scotland, an early Pictish land, which came to be a stronghold of the Vikings from the 9th century.
