The Heusser surname comes from the Middle High German word "hiusse," meaning "lively," or "fresh;" as such, it was most likely originally a nickname, which went on to become a surname.

Heusser Early Origins



The surname Heusser was first found in the Rhineland, where this family was a prominent contributor to the development of the district Strasburg from ancient times. Always influential in social affairs, the surname became an integral part of that turbulent region as it forged alliances with other families within the region and the nation.
