Reville Family HistoryThis unusual and interesting name is of early medieval English origin, and derives from either a nickname or a given name. In the former case, the nickname was used of a fun-loving, boisterous person, derived from the Middle English and Old French word "revel", meaning "festivity, tumult, or riot", from the Old French verb "reveler", to revel, ultimately from the Latin "rebellare", to rebel or riot. "Revel" was also commonly used in medieval England and France as a given name, as in "Revel de Tetenia", recorded in circa 1154 in the Danelaw Documents of London.
