The distinguished surname Scheve is German in origin. It is derived from the Middle High German term "schaffaere," which referred to the manager or steward of a household.

The surname Scheve was first found in Hessen, where the name was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
