Origin: Italian, Dutch, English, Greek
Meaning: the Italian and Dutch masculine form of Peter meaning "stone" from Greek petros.
Pier is also a raised walkway over the water supported by piles or pillars.
In Italian, Pier is usually used in conjunction with another name, like Piermario or Pierluigi.
Pier is also a surname, likely derived from Peter, but I've also seen it listed as being Dutch or Middle Low German meaning "worm, earthworm".
