The prestigious French surname Mercyai is a proud sign of a rich and dynamic ancestry. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Artois were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. They derive from the language of the Franks who controlled most of France after the fall of the Holy Roman Empire. The surname Mercyai is derived from the name Marchand, which is derived from the Latin and Old French words for merchant.
