Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English personal name Wymer, Old English Wīgmǣr (composed of the elements wīg ‘war’ + mǣr ‘famous’), reinforced by the cognate Continental Germanic form Wigmar, introduced into England from France by the Normans. This also became confused with an Old Breton personal name, Wiumarch, composed of the elements uuiu ‘worthy’ + march ‘horse’.
