latin
TRANS VERSŭS / VERTO > TRAVIS

This name derives from an English medieval surname, but of French origins. It was probably introduced into England after the 1066 Norman-French invasion. The name derives from either of the two French male and female nouns "travers" and "traverse", meaning "to cross", which in turn derives from the Latin “trans versŭs”.
