Oliver: baby boy name meaning and popularity

Oliver

Derived from either the French name Olivier or middle low German Alifihar (meaning elf-host) or the Latin oliva, which means “olive tree” (shocker!). So if little Oliver lives up to the meanings of his name, he could either be obsessed with J.R.R. Tolkien (and/or all things Santa-related), or sturdy and fruitful but a little bit gnarly. Either way — unique!
