Last name origin & meaning:
- French (Rémy) and Swiss German : from a medieval personal name which represents a falling together of two distinct Latin names: Remigius (a derivative of remex, genitive remigis, ‘rower, oarsman’), and Remedius (from remedium ‘cure’, ‘remedy’). The former name was borne by a 6th-century bishop of Rheims; the latter was borne by various minor saints of the 8th to 10th centuries.
- A Rémy is cited in 1663 in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, with the secondary surname <xref>Champagne</xref>. Lespérance is also found as a secondary surname with this name.
