Taylor is a gender-neutral name of French origin, meaning "tailor" or "to cut". The name has its roots in the Old French word "tailleur," which means "tailor". It was originally used as an occupational name for a tailor who cut cloth, and its popularity in England during the Middle Ages was influenced by the Norman conquest. Occupational surnames were common in medieval England, and the name Taylor became associated with strength and skill, qualities that are still associated with the name today. The name Taylor has been used as both a first name and a surname, and it is a unisex name, meaning it can be used for both boys and girls. In Wales, Taylor is a rare name, while in Scotland, it is more commonly used as a surname.
