Picker is a surname found in the English-speaking world. Many people with this surname are Jewish and emigrated, or are descendants of those who emigrated, from parts of eastern Europe, including Russia, Belarus and Poland, in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The surname is principally derived from the Yiddish word for the occupation "baker" and is synonymous with the surnames Peker, Baker, and Becker since the letters "p" and "b" have the same Yiddish pronunciation.
