Mason

Mason comes from an English surname, an occupational name for a stonemason, someone who worked with stone. The word comes from Middle English masoun via Anglo-Norman masson, maçon which may be derived from Frankish *makjo (maker; builder; to make); or from Proto-Germanic *mattijô (hoe; chisel) derived from a PIE root word.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
