DEENY Family History

Recorded as Deeny, Denny and Denney, this surname of the British Isles has three quite distinct possible origins. The first of these is an English and Scottish example of a surname created from a personal name. This was a frequent occurrence in the Middle Ages. In this case, the development is from the personal name "Denis" or "Dennis", which itself derives from the Greek "Dionysus", who was the God of wine and revelry! This is a name which was introduced by the returning Crusaders and pilgrims to the Holy Land in the 12th century.
