    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name for a tanner of leather, from Middle English barkere ‘tanner’, tree bark having been used as the tanning agent.

    English: occupational name for a shepherd, from Middle English berker, bercher (Old French berchier, bercher, berkier, berker, Late Latin berbicarius, from berbex ‘ram’, genitive berbicis). With the change of -ar- to -er- in Middle English, this became indistinguishable from the preceding name (see 1 above).
