hunter, pursuer

ORIGIN:British
POPULARITY:84
Parents on the hunt for the perfect name for their child might want to consider Hunter, an occupational surname that hit the top 100 personal names in 1993. During the Middle Ages, hunting was a pursuit for the nobility, not just any bird catcher, poacher or trapper. Of course, the name Hunter—and hunting in general—might not appeal to everyone, so parents looking for names closer to the land might be inspired by tree names like Cypress, nature names like River and Brooks, or animal names such as Wolf, Tiger and Bear. Chase is a nickname for a hunter too.
