Additional information Oliver:
Oliver Reed, actor. Oliver Stone, filmmaker. Oliver Platt, actor. Oliver Hudson, actor. "Oliver Twist", a novel by Charles Dickens. Originally from Germanic Alfhere, altered by association with the French/English names meeaning olive tree.
From the French name, Olivier, recorded as the name of one of Charlemagne's retainers, the close companion in arms of Roland in the Chanson de Roland. Whereas Roland is headstrong and rash, Oliver is thoughtful and cautious. Ostensibly this name derives from Late Latin olivarius 'olive tree', but Charlemagne's other paladins all bear solidly Germanic names, so it is more probably an altered form of a Germanic name, perhaps distantly connected with Old Norse Oleifr 'ancestral relic'. It has remained in more or less continuous use since the medieval period, becoming increasingly popular since the 1980's. Famous bearers include Oliver Cromwell (politician), Oliver Bierhoff (footballer) and Oliver Twist (fictitious character in novel of the same name).

From Olivier, a Norman French form of a Germanic name such as ALFHER or an Old Norse name such as Áleifr (see OLAF). The spelling was altered by association with Latin oliva "olive tree". In the Middle Ages the name became well-known in Western Europe because of the French epic 'La Chanson de Roland', in which Olivier was a friend and advisor of the hero Roland. In England Oliver was a common medieval name, however it became rare after the 17th century because of the military commander Oliver Cromwell, who ruled the country following the civil war. The name was revived in the 19th century, perhaps in part due to the title character in Charles Dickens' novel 'Oliver Twist' (1838), which was about a poor orphan living on the streets of London.
