Name Meaning

English: common occupational name from Middle English sayer, a phonetic variant of Sawyer , which in Wales and neighboring English counties may have been reinforced by the synonymous Welsh saer ‘carpenter’ and everywhere by a possible borrowing into Middle English of Old French seieor, saieur ‘sawyer’.

English: rare occupational name perhaps denoting an assayer of metals, or a servant who tasted his lord's food before serving, from Middle English saiour ‘assayer, tester’ (a shortened form of Old French assaiour, ultimately from Late Latin exagium, a derivative of exagmināre ‘to weigh’).

English: rare occupational name for a professional reciter or minstrel, from Middle English seier(e) ‘speaker’.
