Travis is a boy's name of French origin, meaning "toll collector" or "to cross". Initially a surname derived from the French words "traverser," which translates to "to cross," Travis has become an integral part of the music dynasty, with famous bearers of the name found in rap, rock, and country charts. The name Travis has its roots in the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain, where it was given to a person who collected a toll from travelers or merchants. The surname Travis was first found in Lancashire, where the family held a seat from very ancient times at Mount Travers, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066. The name has since evolved and is now used as a first name, with numerous famous individuals named Travis, such as Travis Barker, Travis Kelce, Travis Scott, Travis Stork, and Travis Tritt.
