    Cool Favourite Occupational Surnames?

    I have recently fallen for occupational names, what are you favourites and any more obscure suggestions?

    Current list:
    Archer
    Carter
    Chandler
    Gardner - I think this one is unusable.
    Hunter - Becoming popular in my state (South Australia)
    Mason - Too popular.
    Porter - 50/50 on this.

    'Jess' Jessica Emily Faith
    Living down under...
    Australian/German/South African/Scottish/English/Irish/Romani
    Elsa: Mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own

    Ronan: Spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous.
    Other considerations
    Mary Belle - Conrad - Elaina/Elena? - Jonas

    I don't have any names to add but though I would say that I know what you mean about Hunter being really popular in South Australia! I know 5 Hunters under the age of 1! 3 of them born within 48 hours of each other!

    My favourites are Archer, Hunter, Sailor, Ryder, and Walker - because they convey such positive, strong images: warriors, wanderers, searchers. Also the historical and mythological associations.

    Other names I like (based more on sound and other reasons):
    * Brenner
    * Cherrier
    * Drummer
    * Falkner / Falconer
    * Fletcher
    * Sawyer
    * Scarlett (prefer Scarlet)
    * Tolliver
    * Weaver
    * Webster
    Arabella, Thibault, Sophia, Alfred, Eleanor, Rémi, Charlotte, Achille, Olivia, Clement, Elizabeth, Frederick, Maud, Benedict, Adèle.
