Name Meaning

1 English: occupational name for a dresser of cloth, Old English fullere (from Latin fullo, with the addition of the English agent suffix). The Middle English successor of this word had also been reinforced by Old French fouleor, foleur, of similar origin. The work of the fuller was to scour and thicken the raw cloth by beating and trampling it in water. This surname is found mostly in southeast England and East Anglia. See also Tucker and Walker .2 In a few cases the name may be of German origin with the same form and meaning as 1 (from Latin fullare).3 Americanized version of French Fournier .
