Thrower Name Meaning

English (mainly East Anglia): occupational name for someone who made silk thread from raw silk, from an agent derivative of Middle English throw(en) (Old English þrawan ‘to twist’). From the 13th century the verb began to be used in its modern sense, including throwing clay in pottery, and so in some cases the surname may have originated as an occupational name for a potter.
