Walker

Walker comes from an English surname, an occupational name for a fuller, someone who thickened and scoured raw cloth by beating and trampling it in water. It comes from Old English wealcere (one who fulls cloth), a derivative of wealcan (to walk, to move around) which ultimately derives from a PIE root word.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
