Olivier is a boy’s name of French and Latin origin. It’s the French form of Oliver, which derives from the Latin word olivarius, meaning “olive tree planter” or “olive branch bearer.” It has also been theorized to come from the Old Norse name Óleifr, the Anglo-Saxon Alfhere, the Greek Eleutherios, or the Germanic words for “wolf army.” With so many potential origins, this classic name has plenty of cross-cultural appeal! This name was famously borne as a surname by the English actor Laurence Olivier.
