Factor Name Meaning

German and Dutch: humanistic name, a translation into Latin of any of various names meaning ‘steward’ or ‘agent’, for example Hoffmann or Meyer. Scottish and English: from Latin factor ‘agent’, literally ‘doer’, from facere ‘to do’. In 15th-century English, this word developed the specialist sense of a merchant’s agent in another town; it also came to denote a steward in charge of an estate, the usual meaning in Scotland.
