The May Surname is Gaelic origin. Medieval English and Norman French Mai, a geeting for a friend.
Also derives from Name Matthew Hebrew Mattathiah Gift of God.
May, Mays, Mey, LeMay, Lemay, Mayes

A Note Here:
Often when you research for May you get everything in the Month of may so it is sometimes difficult to research the surname May.

The best way to research the surname May
if you know the first name like Daniel May, put Parenthesis around the entire name "Daniel May", you will get everything that has daniel may together in the search.
if you just search for May you get everything with May in it, if you leave the parenthesis off, you will get everything with daniel, may, and daniel may in it.
the parenthesis is the key. plus searching for a first name along with the last name.
If you do not know the first name, then try the most popular names in the time era you are searching. Say William May, Daniel May, James May, Jacob May, george May, David May, Samuel May, etc. not many people named their children Hunter, or Cody early on in our history.
