Jolly Genealogy & History

The surname Jolly is of Norman French or English origin. It is thought to be a descriptive name for a person with a happy personality, derived from the Middle English and Old French joli, meaning merry or lively, from the Old Norse Jol, the festival during which people celebrated the lengthening of days in midwinter. Jolly genealogy shows the alternative spellings of Jollie, Jolie, and Joly. The first recorded instance of the name in Jolly family history appears to be John Jolif in 1273 in Huntingdonshire. The Jolly coat of arms is described as a red mullet between three black pheons on a silver shield.
