Montgomery is a given name transferred from a Norman surname. Although there are many stories of its origin, the most common one explains that the name is a corruption of "Gomer's Mount" or "Gomer's Hill" (county of Montgomeryshire in Wales), any of a number of hills in Europe named in attribution to the biblical patriarch Gomer. Alternatively, from the Germanic personal name "Gumaric", meaning "man-power", deriving from a Germanic root " *gumô" (man, husband) plus "*rīkijaz" (kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich).
