I have just returned from Zeven and Byhusen, Northern Germany from where my Meier relatives originated in 1871. I am advised by just found living relatives who still live there, and a local historian, that the name Meier (sometimes spelt Meyer) simply means worker. The name is extremely common in that part of Germany. Similar to Jones and Brown.
