Gender: M Origin of Tinker: English occupational name

A not uncommon surname in Northern England that remains uncommon as a first name everywhere.

To many, it instantly conjures up the image of Tinker Bell, Peter Pan's fairy friend. (We don't know enough about fairy naming customs to say whether Tinker is a given name, her surname or some sort of formal title, like Ambassador.)
