Joy originates from the Old French word joie, meaning cheerful or joyous, which in turn is from the Latin gaudere, meaning rejoice. Some of the different spellings are Joie, Joyes, Goye, Joyce, Goys and Goce. The family motto is death, or life with honor. Joy family history tells us that Lefwin Joie is the first known spelling of the name in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk, England, in 1166.
