Meaning of this name is unknown.

Ralph Hall Sayre says: Authorities on family name origins commonly stated that the American “Sayre” and “Sayer” were occupational but disagree somewhat on the actual origin. Some said it was from “assayer” meaning a “tester of metals.” In researching this genealogy, I was informed by a correspondent that “Saer” was a Gaelic word meaning “Carpenter.” I was never able to confirm or verify that. Some of the older surname references suggested that Sayre and Sayer came from the Old High German name “Sigihari” meaning “victorious army,” which would fit into the history of Teutons.
