SURNAME ORIGINS

The surname Esser is an occupational name for a wheelwright or cartmaker, from the Middle Low German asse or "axle" + the agent suffix -er. The surname was also spelled Essers.

It is unclear what the surname Meuter/Meutter means. It may be a variant of Mutter, meaning "mother".

The surname Bauch or Bauchs is a nickname for a fat man, from Middle High German buch or "belly".
