From the historical and enchanting region of Artois emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Remy family. Originally, people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Artois is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Two of the common types of family names found in the Artois are patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name.

Remy Early Origins



The surname Remy was first found in Artois, a former province of northern France where they held a family seat in the seigneurie of Campeau, and were one of the distinguished members of the aristocracy in the north-east tip of France where their estates were as far south as Lorraine, Picardy, and Champagne.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Ultra Remigandun
Motto Translation: Return from beyond
