Meaning:Dweller by the open country
Fielder is a fitting name for boys. Taken from the Middle English felder, it means “dweller by the open country.” As a surname, it was given in reference to someone who lived or worked in the fields or the countryside. Over time, the moniker also absorbed the meaning of a defensive position in the cricketing and baseball world. So if you’re an avid follower of either sport and have high hopes for your little one making it big in the same, choosing Fielder as their name will ensure they play their hearts out in both the game and at life!
