Butler is a masculine name that boasts a sophisticated and somewhat regal aura. Both a surname and a given name, it has quite an interesting history behind it. In Ireland, it might be more commonly found as a surname and can be linked to a noble family dynasty in the midlands. Ultimately, it is thought to stem from the French surname Boutilier, which means “the bottler” or “bottle bearer.” Butler also has English roots and was originally borne by servants in charge of wine cellars.
