Rice is a surname that is usually of Welsh origin, but also can be Irish, English, or even German. In Wales it is an Anglicized transliteration of Rhys, as are Reese and Price. In Ireland, Rice may sometimes be an Anglicized transliteration of Ó Maolchraoibhe. Recent genetic evidence shows the surname also arose independently in southeastern England among men with non-Celtic ancestry. The German name Reiss has also been transliterated as Rice in the United States.[1]
