Meaning of name Overbeck/Averbeck

Hi everyone, probably a dumb question, but I can't find the meaning of our name ... I know ober means "upper" in German, but what the heck does "beck" mean? Names like Beckman and Becker are common, so the beck has to mean something pretty simple. I just can't figure it out! Thanks.
