US Popularity:11896
Meaning:Dark wise one
Be honest, can you think of a better conversation starter than your name meaning "dark wise one?" With Irish roots, the boy's name Dwyer is an anglicized variation of the surname O'Dwyer, which is also one of Ireland's oldest clans. It's closely related to Dyer and Maguire and can be traced back to what is now County Tipperary. Dwyer's meaning is a nod to forefather Dubhuir mac Spealáin's hair color, but it may also be rooted in the word dubh, meaning "dark." As for the "wise" part, let's just say that your little one will totally be an old soul!
