    Name Meaning

    Americanized form of German Meyer or Mayer .

    French: status name for a sharecropper, from an angent derivative of Old French moie ‘half’.

    In some cases also an Americanized form of Dutch Mooijer: surname associated with Maaijer, an occupational name for a mower or reaper (see Maier ). However, almost all bearers come from Volendam (North Holland), where the surname originated as Pooijer, possibly a metonymic occupational name for a fisherman (peurder) or a nickname for someone carrying a ponjaard ‘dagger’. The surname was changed to Mooijer due to the connotation with Dutch pooier ‘bully, fancy-man’.
