Palmer is an Anglo-French name derived from the Old French "paumier". That name was a description of someone who had made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land; pilgrims brought back a palm as proof of the journey. Some spellings are Palmar, Parmer, Paumier, Pymar, and Pimer. Written Palmer family history begins in 1191 with Wiger le Palmer in the Lincolnshire Rolls. The family motto is "The palm is for virtue". Members of Palmer genealogy include professional snowboarder Shaun Palmer, Chicago businessman and real estate developer Potter Palmer, television musical composer Shelly Palmer, and Avatar self-development system founder Harry Palmer.
