Recorded in the modern spellings of Friday and Fridaye, this is a very early English medieval surname. It derives from the pre 7th century Olde English 'frigedaeg', which means 'Friday', and traditionally it has always been said that the name was given to one born on that day. However this does not really add up, as there are hardly any other surnames associated with other days of the week. As examples the surname Munday or Mundy, is a form of 'Moon day', and means one born on the night of the new moon, and Tuesday is apparently only found as a first name.
