How to find meaning of last name via ancestry?

I’m trying to find out what the meaning of my last name is. Not necessarily the family tree or who my relatives are ancestors are, but the origin of the root meaning behind the word in my name. It’s my understanding that most names began with some kind of meaning/purpose way back in the day. Any ideas how I can find this information on the Internet or a site you would recommend where I can look this up?
