Origin of Oliver

  • Old French Olivier, by folk etymology shaped to look like Late Latin olivarius (“olive tree"), but probably representing a West Germanic form of Old Norse Óleifr (“ancestral + relic") (modern Olaf and Olof), or Proto-Germanic *ala- + *wÄ“raz (“true") (modern Alvar, Álvaro). Name of a paladin of Charlemagne in medieval French romance.
