The surname Hauer, comes from the German word "Heu" meaning "hay." The name is occupational in origin, especially so, when it serves as an element in a compound. Heumaier would refer to the officer who oversaw the delivery of the hay harvest. Heuwemenger is the equivalent of "Heuhändler" meaning hey merchant. The surname Hauer on its own would likely be applied to a hay farmer or cutter.
