Meaning & History
Derived from Old High German hrôm "fame, glory" combined with rîcja "powerful, strong, mighty." The second element is also closely related to Celtic rîg or rix and Gothic reiks, which all mean "king, ruler." This name was borne by a Frankish saint from the 8th century AD, from whom the French village Remiremont derives its name.
