Meaning & Origins

From an Old French personal name, Rog(i)er, of Germanic (Frankish) origin, from hrōd ‘fame’ + gār, gēr ‘spear’. This was adopted by the Normans and introduced by them to Britain, replacing the native Old English form Hrōðgār. Roger was one of the most popular boys' names throughout the medieval period, but less so after the Reformation, though it has continued in regular use to the present day. Roger, Count of Sicily (c.1031–1101), son of Tancred, recovered Sicily from the Arabs. His son, also called Roger, ruled Sicily as king, presiding over a court noted for its splendour and patronage of the arts.

English and Irish (of Norman origin): habitational name from various places in northern France: Beaumais-sur-Dire in Calvados, Beaumetz in Somme, or any of three places called Beaumetz in Pas-de-Calais. They are named in Old French as beu ‘fair’, ‘lovely’ + més ‘dwelling’. Compare Mas. A place called Beamish in County Durham is an Anglo-Norman French place name of the same origin, first mentioned in the 13th century; it is possible that in some cases the surname is from this place.
