The first people to use the name Aire were a family of Strathclyde- Britons who lived in the Scottish/English Borderlands. The name comes from when someone lived in the city of Ayr in South-Western Scotland.

Aire Early Origins



The surname Aire was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where the family has held a family seat from ancient times. One of the first on record was Reginald Ayr, who was Clerk of Ayr in 1287 and Albinus Ayr had a charter of lands from King Robert the Bruce in 1315.
