Marker

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English: topographic name for someone who lived by a boundary (see Mark 2). It is notable that early examples of the surname tend to occur near borders, for example on the Kent-Sussex boundary.
  2. English: possibly an occupational name from an agent derivative of Middle English mark(en) ‘to put a mark on’, although it is not clear what the exact nature of the work of such a ‘marker’ would be.
  3. English: relatively late development of Mercer. There is one family in Clitheroe, Lancashire, who spelled their name Mercer or Marcer in the 16th century, but Marker in the 17th.
  4. Jewish (Ashkenazic): occupational name from Yiddish marker ‘servant’.
  5. German: status name for someone who lived on an area of land that was marked off from the village land or woodland, Middle High German merkære.
  6. Danish: from a short form of the Germanic personal name Markward.
