Meaning & Origins

One of the small class of girls' names taken from vocabulary words denoting birds. Mavis is another word for the song thrush, first attested in Chaucer. It is from Old French, and probably ultimately of Breton origin. The given name is not found before the last decade of the 19th century; it was popular in the 1930s and 40s but has since gone out of fashion.
1,597th in the U.S.
English: occupational name, from Middle English bakere, Old English bæcere, a derivative of bacan ‘to bake’. It may have been used for someone whose special task in the kitchen of a great house or castle was the baking of bread, but since most humbler households did their own baking in the Middle Ages, it may also have referred to the owner of a communal oven used by the whole village. The right to be in charge of this and exact money or loaves in return for its use was in many parts of the country a hereditary feudal privilege. Compare Miller. Less often the surname may have been acquired by someone noted for baking particularly fine bread or by a baker of pottery or bricks.
40th in the U.S.
