Name Meaning

English: from a Biblical personal name, meaning in Hebrew ‘God is (my) light’, which was popular among the Puritans, especially among early settlers in New England, but also in the southern states. In the First and Second Books of Samuel, Abner is Saul's uncle and the commander of his army, who is eventually cut down by Joab (II Samuel 3:12–39). This surname is very rare in Britain.

Probably also an Americanized form of German Ebner .
