Gender: M Meaning of Webster: "weaver" Origin of Webster: English occupational name

Webster is one of several W-starting surname names back on the drawing board, now that it has recovered from its childlike eighties sitcom identity.

Webster was used in respectable numbers in the past--it reached a high of Number 388 in 1890--but like several other surnames starting with W, fell off the list completely in the 1940s. With its engaging nickname Webb, we can see it making a comeback.

Webster Young was a jazz trumpeter who played with most of the greats, but more prominent bearers wore Webster as a surname--in particular statesman Daniel and lexicographer Noah.
