Meier Genealogy & History

Meier genealogy is widespread in the English, Dutch, French, German, and Swiss worlds, though the specific spelling "Meier" is German. Alternate spellings are many and include Mair, Mayer, Meijer, and Meyer. The name derives from the very common Latin word "magnus", meaning "great", which could denote a notable or especially prominent person. It had a long history as a nickname or semi-official title, then came into use as a given name, and eventually became a surname. As an occupational surname, it referred to the leading citizen of a location, the "mayor". Meier family history in the United States extends back to at least the early eighteenth century.
