Name Meaning

German, English, and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from Middle High German hamer, Yiddish hamer, a metonymic occupational name for a maker or user of hammers, for example in a forge, or a nickname for a forceful person. As an English surname, the derivation from Middle English ham(m)er, hamor ‘hammer’ (Old English hamor) is formally possible, either as a metonymic occupational name or as a locative or occupational name taken from a shop sign or inn sign. However, there is no evidence that such appellations became hereditary surnames. The surname of German origin (possibly also in the sense 2 below) is also found in France (Alsace and Lorraine).English and German: topographic name for someone who lived in an area of water meadow, or flat, low-lying alluvial land beside a stream, Middle English ham(me), Old English hamm, Old High German ham (see Hamm ) + the English and German agent suffix -er. In England, names composed of a topographic term + -er are characteristic of southern England, especially Kent, Sussex, Surrey, and Hampshire.English: possibly a variant of Hanmer , and in northern England a variant of Hamer .
