Meaning:famous spearman
Roger is a German masculine name that packs a powerful punch. This name is forged from the German elements hrod and ger, imbuing it with the striking translation of "famous spearman." Boasting a polished sound, Roger is a modern take on the Old English Hrōðgār, which some may recognize from the epic poem Beowulf. A semi-legendary 6th-century Danish king, Hrōðgār is depicted in the poem as a brave, wise, and generous ruler. As an homage to a great leader, Roger is a fine title fit for a sharp mind.
