Walker is a surname of Anglo-Scottish or German origins. This name may signify either a fuller or an officer whose duty consisted of walking or inspecting a certain space of forest ground. This name derives from the Old English “wealcan”, meaning “to walk”, which in turn derives from the Proto-Germanic “*walkaną”, meaning “to move around, to revolve”.
