Seiler M

germanic
seil > sailleor

This name derives from the 7th century German surname “Seiler, Sieler and Sailor”, from the Old High German “seil“ (Old French: sailleor “jumper”), meaning “rope, line, cord, dancing, rope dancing”. However as ropes were used more and more in shipping, it maybe that by association a person who sailed using ropes became a sailor. In turn the name denotes someone who was a dancer or acrobat”.
