Name Meaning

1 English and Dutch: occupational name for a tanner of skins, Middle English tanner, Middle Dutch taenre. (The Middle English form derives from Old English tannere, from Late Latin tannarius, reinforced by Old French taneor, from Late Latin tannator; both Late Latin forms derive from a verb tannare, possibly from a Celtic word for the oak, whose bark was used in the process.)2 Swiss and German: habitational name for someone from any of several places called Tanne (in the Harz Mountains and Silesia) or Tann (southern Germany).3 Finnish: topographic or ornamental name from Finnish tanner ‘open field’.
