Last name origins & meanings:
- Irish (County Donegal): Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó
Duibhidhir or sometimes of Mac Duibhidhir (see
Dwyer, also Dyer).
- English: of uncertain
derivation; possibly from diver, an agent derivative of Middle
English dive ‘to dip or plunge’, but if so the application is
obscure. It may be a nickname for someone compared to a diving
bird. Compare Ducker.
