Raymond (m) An Old German name composed of
elements meaning ‘advice’ and ‘defence.’ It became popular in England and Wales from 1925-50, reaching Scotland rather later. In 1958 Raymond was still the 39th most frequently used name in Scotland, but it seems to have faded away since then.

The diminutive Ray is sometimes used as an independent name, more frequently for girls than boys and often in the form Rae. The girls’ name presumably derives from Rachel.
