Meaning of the name:

From the Latin "olivarius", the olive tree, this name is probably a French version of an old Germanic name derived from Olaf. It was popularized in the twelfth century by the famous Chanson de Roland, the oldest French chanson de geste. At the time of Crusades, it was also awarded in honor of the Mount of Oilviers, east of Jerusalem, where Jesus went to pray before his death.
