The origins of the Pardey surname date back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was a person who was known for their habitual use of the oath pour Dieu, which is Old French meaning "for God." This is a subset of the nickname type of name known as oath names.
