IVIE Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Germanic and Old French origin, and has two possible sources. Firstly, it may be derived from the Norman personal name "Ivo", a short form of any of the various Germanic compound names with a first element "iv" (Old Norse "yr", the plural of "ifar") yew, bow (a weapon generally made from the supple wood of the yew tree). This was a popular name in Normandy and Brittany, and was introduced into England at the time of the Conquest of 1066, perhaps reinforcing the Olde English pre 7th Century "Ifa, Iva".
