Archer is a gender-neutral name of French, Latin, and English origins, meaning “bowman.” The name derived from the Latin word arcarius and French archier. It was traditionally a surname borne by talented archers of the Middle Ages and only found its feet as a first name in the 19th century. The occupational name hits the sweet spot between Archibald and Archie while still giving parents the option to use the latter as a cute nickname. With a cross-gender appeal and modern sound, Archer certainly hits all the right marks.
