The Name - Spiller

This uncommon and interesting name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and has two quite distinct interpretations.
Firstly, it may be an occupational name for a jester, juggler, or tumbler, one who travelled with the medieval fairs
or was attached to the court, or to a nobleman's retinue.
The name derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century verb "spilian", to play, jest, sport, in Middle English "spill(en)",
with the addition of the agent suffix "-er", indicating "one who does or works with".
