"God's peace"

Orry Origin and Meaning

The name Orry is a boy's name meaning "God's peace".

Little-known outside the Isle of Man (between Britain and Ireland), Orry is a Manx form of Godfrey. So while it looks as friendly and casual as a nickname, it's a complete name in itself, and may appeal as an unusual alternative to names like Harry and Ari. It reached the US via Patrick Swayze, who played Orry Main in the 1985 TV series North and South.
