Reply to: What does it mean by huber
Huber is not the same as Hubert. It is originally a German surname from Middle High German huoba, "a measure of land", used for a farmer who held more land than his neighbors. In the USA the surname was often Anglicized as Hoover.

The above information is from Hanks & Hodges' A Dictionary of Surnames.
