Significance and origin
Boyer

See Also: Bouvet

Le surnom d'un bouvier (de l'homme qui gardait ou qui possédait des boeufs) fut certainement à l'origine de ce nom de famille. Boyer : avec 12.243 foyers abonnés au téléphone (dont 506 à Paris), soit environ 33.000 personnes, ce patronyme occupe le 52e rang des noms les plus fréquents en France. Sa répartition géographique le montre particulièrement concentré dans le Sud-Est et la région Midi-Pyrénées.
