Paper Name Meaning
English: unexplained. In part at least, the name appears to be of Dutch or French (possibly Huguenot) origin, perhaps a translation of Papier, a metonymic occupational name for a clerk or scribe, or perhaps a respelling of Pape. Swiss German: variant spelling of Papper, probably from baby talk. Compare Paben.
