Name Meaning

English: occupational name for a butcher. In part it is from Middle English flescher, an agent derivative of Old English flæ¯sc ‘flesh’, ‘meat’; in part a reduced form of Middle English fleschewere, Old English flæ¯schēawere, in which the second element is an agent noun from hēawan ‘to hew or cut’.
