This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.


A more complete treatment on the name “Romi.” The first book checked is American Family Names (author: Patrick Hanks), 3 volumes. ROMEY – German: Variant of Romig. ROMIG – German Römig from personal name Remigius

The second book is the most authoritative book on German surnames: Etymologisches Wörterbuch der Deutschen Familiennamen.(= Etymological Dictionary of German Surnames) ---- author: Josef Karlmann Brechenmacher.(Lieferung 11-21 = Zweiter Band = 1960-63 K-Z., p427)

One of the entries is the name Röm(m)ig, Römmich, which derives from Remigius, with the comment “besonders in der Pfalz” (= especially in the Palatinate).

Röm(m)ig, Römmich: Deriving from Remigus especially in the Palatinate Compared thereabouts to the Remigus peoples thus residents of the Remigus cities or villages. Example of the name Georg Römmig, soldier from Bamburg in 1623.
