Meaning:Granary, grain dealer
If an idyllic life on the farm awaits your little green-thumbed wonder, masculine Grainger has a perfectly rustic vibe. This Anglo-Norman name derives from the Old French word grangier, from the Latin granicarius, meaning "granary" or "grain dealer." Grainger was the occupational surname given to farm bailiffs—those who owned granaries or whose job was to collect rent and tax from farm workers. Reminiscent of Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, today, Grainger is a familiar appellation already admired by Potterheads.
