    Name Meaning

    English: of uncertain origin. Redmonds questions the derivation from vivers ‘victuals’, proposed by Weekley and others, since the earliest OED references to this sense date from the 16th century and thus postdate the family name; he believes that the distribution of the name points to a source in Cumberland or north Lancashire, as yet unidentified.
