Fee Family HistoryRecorded in many forms including O' Fee, O' Fay, Fee, Fay, and Foy as well as diminutives such as Fagan, Fegan, Feehan, and Feighan, this interesting surname is of Irish origin. The origin is said to be from the pre 10th century Gaelic O' Faich, meaning 'The male descendant of the Raven', with Raven being an early personal name. Most Irish clan names originate from a nickname for the first chief, and in that respect Raven is one of the more polite examples. It is said that the name holders as Fee and Fay are mainly from County Armagh in Ulster, and this is possible although if so they would seem to be overlap with English settlers in the same area also called Fay.
