Is Faust a Jewish name?

Hello
How do I prove that a name/ancestory is of the Jewish roots? It doesn't matter to me in which it turns.
My mother-in-law says she is but has no proof.
I would like to put this claim to rest. She assumes cause it sounds Jewish it is. I don't know exactly where the Faust orginated from but they were in Berks, Dauphin & Northumberland counties in Pa in the 1700's till now. Most of all the Faust were buried in Methodist and Lutheran cemetaries.
I thought that most Jewish people that came to America came for the freedom to practice their religion? Were their alot of converts to Christianity?
My mother-in-law was raised in a Christian faith with no Jewish roots to be told of.
Where do I search to prove this claim?
