This name is a splendid one, I think!  🙂  A cute little name that I can’t help but think would perfectly fit a good-natured, if mischievous, child….  The female counterpart, Olivia, is also lovely.

– Oliver –

Origin:  Latin

Meaning:  Olive tree

It’s been popular in England for some time, but is gaining popularity here in the US–which makes me happy, because I’m fond of it!

Notable (in fiction books) Olivers include the main character in Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist and Oliver Wood in the Harry Potter series.
