English: occupational name for a weaver, from early Middle English webbe (Old English webba (masculine) or webbe (feminine), probably used of both male and female weavers). 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 (see Webster , Webber and compare Weaver ).
Americanized form of various like-sounding Jewish (Ashkenazic) surnames, cognates of 1, including Weber and Weberman.
