The Meurer surname comes from the German word "mauer," meaning "wall;" as such, the name is thought to have originally been occupational, for a builder of stone walls.

Meurer Early Origins



The surname Meurer was first found in Austria, where the name Meurer became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
