    I like Abner quite a lot. Aber not so much, it feels incomplete to me.

    Thank you for your input. It’s always interesting to get an outside perspective, especially one from those who are interested in names.

    Aber is actually a Germanic/Austrian surname meaning illustrious, keen, or sharp-sighted and it was an esteemed surname throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. It’s not a "prefix", but sometimes "suffixes" are added to the name to tell something about the origin or background of the original bearer.

    Again, I appreciate your input.

    It's also a German word meaning ...why? (as in a cry of surprise) & but (as in if, condition, opposition, limitation).
    As a German speaker I would probably not use it.
