Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:Roofer; Hard warrior
Hillier is a name that links to both English and German ancestry, with the dual meanings "hard warrior" and the occupation-inspired "roofer." In various English counties throughout the land, the terms hillier and hellier were used to describe the jobs of a "roofer" and a "tiler," respectively. Hillier is probably best known as a surname right now, but that is something baby will begin to change. David Hillier was one to put the name on the map in the 1990s as a midfielder at English Premier League club Arsenal. Your little one can follow David and attempt to take Hillier to the top of the league.
