Gender: F Meaning of Romilly: "man of Rome" Origin of Romilly: English

Originally a male name springing from the Roman twin Romulus, this attractively dainty name was introduced to the English-speaking world by painter Augustus John who used it for his son. Romilly John became Admiral of the Fleet in England.

A French surname from the twelfth century on, it's more recently and more appropriately been heard as a girls' name; Emma Thompson, for example, used Romilly as her daughter Gaia's middle name.

The logical nickname would be Romy, which is very much in style.
