Gender: M Meaning of Whistler: "one who whistles" Origin of Whistler: English occupational name

A new entry is the fashionable new occupational name category -- and a jolly job it must be -- with the added attraction of relating to the great early 20th century American artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler, of "Whistler's Mother" fame.
