I have seen on the Web that my surname Spivey is derived from the Spivak family of the Ukraine and thus, is a Jewish surname. I cannot prove any of this statement, but can relate via DNA testing the Spivey family is of Viking descent. The testing only goes back to approximately 1500 years, so who knows.

I must mention another site indicates the name comes from and Olde English name, which sounds more likely the correct ancestry, as my line came from Leeds and Barnsley, Yorrkshire Province.
