Sayer Origin and Meaning

The name Sayer is a boy's name of English origin meaning "woodcutter or reciter".
One of the more subtle occupational surnames, Sayer is a pleasant, open, last-name-first name, particularly apt for a family of woodworkers -- or writers. Some parents are beginning to consider Sayer as a less popular alternative to Sawyer, which it may be a variation of, or a separate occupational name for someone who recited poetry and news, or even another occupational name an for assayer, who tested metals or tasted food.

The most well known surnamed Sayer is the British singer Leo Sayer.
