The distinguished surname Lerner is a proud symbol of an ancient Jewish heritage. In the Middle Ages, it became important for people to assume surnames, since it was becoming more and more difficult to identify people with the same names, in the crowded towns and cities. The adoption of hereditary surnames, which came from a variety of sources, was a direct solution to this problem. The surname Lerner is an occupational surname, which comes from the Yiddish word lernen, which means student. In Eastern Europe, a young husband would spend all his days studying the Torah, and this, being considered his primary activity, was deemed an occupation.
