    Name Meaning

    Americanized form of German Hauser or its Dutch equivalents Huijser, Huiser and Huizer.English (Middlesex): perhaps an occupational name from Middle English housere ‘builder’, though no medieval bearers have been found, and so in Britain the name may alternatively be exclusively of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) origin (see Hauser , compare 1 above).
