Name Meaning

English: occupational name, probably for a trimmer of cloth. The verb trim is not attested in its modern sense before the early 16th century, but the surname form William le Trymmere is found in the 14th century, and this seems to be continuous with Old English trymian, trymman ‘to strengthen or confirm’ (from trum ‘strong’, ‘firm’).
