Roy is an Anglo-Norman name of Norman origin. This family name originated from the Normans, the descendants of Norse Vikings from Denmark, Norway and Iceland who later migrated to Normandy. The derivation is from the word roy, meaning "king". The Normans brought this surname to England, which in medieval times was used as a nickname either for one who behaved in a regal fashion, or who had earned the title in some contest of skill. "Le Roy le veult" ("The King wills it"), is a Norman French phrase still used in the Parliament of the United Kingdom to this day. It also appears in Scottish Gaelic, anglicized from the word ruadh, meaning "red". In India, Roy is an adopted surname generally given as a historical title of honor conferred by the British Raj.
