Name Meaning

English: from Middle English fauconer, fauk(e)ner, falconer ‘falconer’ (Old French fau(l)connier), an occupational name for someone who kept and trained falcons (a common feudal service). Falconry was a tremendously popular sport among the aristocracy in medieval Europe, and most great houses had their falconers. The surname could also have arisen as a metonymic occupational name for someone who operated the siege gun known as a falcon.
