As I understand it the origin of Arner is Swiss but the original name is Aner. I have read that the name Arner in German is derived from "reaper". There is also a reference to Arner as meaning 'son of' as son of Henry of Arne. This reference is from a book Origins of German surnames. Since I think we Arners and descendants of same are most likely sturdy peasant stock I lean more toward the reaper explanation.
