The German state of Bavaria is the ancestral home of the Luera family. Nickname surnames, such as Luera, were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The family name Luera is a name for a person who is considered holy or intelligent. It stems from a Old German word "Liutberht," meaning "most brilliant or holy, of the people." The endings "-bert," "-bricht," "-pert," "-ke" and "-brecht" are interchangeable in medieval names, depending on the region.

German settlers were among the most common to come to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. Poverty and religious persecution drove many Bavarians to make this long trek. tenant farmers were also enticed by the prospect of owning land. From east to west, these German immigrants populated the United States, settling in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada also provided homes to many. Early settlers bearing the Luera surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Jacob Lippert, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1736.
