Last name origins & meanings:

This word survived into Middle English long enough to give rise to the surname, but was already obsolescent as an agent noun; hence the secondary forms with the agent suffixes -er and -ster.
  2. Americanized form of various Ashkenazic Jewish cognates, including Weber and Weberman.
