Meaning & Origins

Mainly U.S.: transferred use of the surname, in origin a local name for someone who lived by a patch of fallow land, from Middle English lay, ley ‘fallow’ + land ‘land’. The surname is well established in the United States. It was borne by the humorous writer Charles Leland (1824–1903), author of The Breitmann Ballads, and it is also the name of a city in Mississippi.
1,094th in the U.S.
English, Scottish, Welsh, and German: from the Old French personal name Olivier, which was taken to England by the Normans from France. It was popular throughout Europe in the Middle Ages as having been borne by one of Charlemagne's paladins, the faithful friend of Roland, about whose exploits there were many popular romances. The name ostensibly means ‘olive tree’ (see Oliveira), but this is almost certainly the result of folk etymology working on an unidentified Germanic personal name, perhaps a cognate of Alvaro. The surname is also borne by Jews, apparently as an adoption of the non-Jewish surname.
245th in the U.S.
