Region Origin: Western Europe

Roger is a masculine given name and a surname with Germanic origins, derived from the elements "hrōd" (fame, renown, honor) and "gār" or "gēr" (spear, lance). The name was introduced to England by the Normans and became a very common given name during the Middle Ages. A variant form of the name, Rodger, is closer to its origin. The name Roger has also been used as slang for the word "penis" from around 1650 to 1870. In a different context, "Roger that" is a widespread term for confirmation, which originates from the phonetic alphabet used by military and aviation personnel during World War II.
