Sawyer is an occupational name benefiting from a worker trend in baby names. It became a household name thanks to hunky Josh Holloway in the popular TV series "Lost," which aired from 2004 to 2010. Despite its British origins, Sawyer is now seen as distinctly American and more inspired by Mark Twain’s "Adventures of Tom Sawyer" than any English surname. A unisex name, Sawyer has been given to a son of Steven Spielberg, a daughter of Sara Gilbert and a daughter of NFL player Matthew Stafford.
