Origin and Meaning

1) New combination of OL and IV [1] [2]

2) English form of the Norman French name Olivier of uncertain origin and meaning

Theories include:

2b) Variant form of Alfarr (or its German cognate Alfihar) [4] [5] [6]

2c) Variant form of Wolfheri [5] [6]

2d) Later, it was regarded to have Latin origins, Latin olivarius = '(cultivator of) olive tree(s)', but the original use of the name makes theories a), b) and c) more likely [5] [7] [2] [2]
