Fayre

Fayre comes from an English surname, a variant spelling of Fair meaning “fair, beautiful” which comes from Old English fæger (beautiful, good-looking, attractive) which ultimately derives from a PIE root word. As a surname, Fair could also have been given to someone who had blond hair, or someone who was honest and unbiased. Apparently Fair was also used as a unisex name in Middle English. Fayre is also an archaic word for “fair”, as in a street fair.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
