Gender: F Meaning of Sawyer: "woodcutter" Origin of Sawyer: English occupational name Sawyer's Popularity in 2016: #246

Sawyer is a stylish, newly unisex name, used for their daughters by such parents as Sara Gilbert, co-host of The Talk and former actress on Roseanne. While Sawyer feels more conventionally masculine—maybe it's the image of a person wielding a saw?—this is one of those newly-stylish occupational names that can work for either gender. It made the Top 300 for the first time in 2015, and continued to climb, to Number 246, in 2016. If you want something with less brawn and more brains than Sawyer, try Sayer.
