Meaning:Olive tree; Olive tree planter; Descendant of the ancestors; Elf army
Olliver is a French name for boys. Due to varied linguistic references, the meanings are contested. Generally, it’s accepted that it derives from the Latin olivarius to refer to “olive tree” or “olive tree planter.” But Old Nordic culture would argue the moniker is an evolved form of Olaf which means “descendant of the ancestors.” On the other hand, it may even come from the ancient Germanic name Alfihar which stands for “elf army.” While Oliver is a more popular spelling, you can choose Olliver so that baby always stands apart from the rest. If nothing else, this host of varied definitions will make for an interesting ice-breaker wherever they go.
