English (southern) 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.
