The surname Fraly belongs to the category of surnames that were derived from nicknames, usually based on a personal or physical characteristic of the initial bearer. In this instance, the name is derived from the Middle High German word "vraelich," which means "happy," or "cheerful." Thus, this surname evolved from a nickname for a merry and cheerful person.
