The roots of the German surname Schexnayder lie in the northern region of Schleswig-Holstein. The name is derived from two Low German words, "schat," meaning "handle," and "schneider," meaning "to cut." Thus, the name was most likely originally borne by someone who cut the shafts for spears or tools.

Schexnayder Early Origins



The surname Schexnayder was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the name first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Herman Scachtsnidere, who was living in Hamburg in 1262. The young Schexnayder family was instrumental during this early period, playing a crucial role in the development of the society of Schleswig-Holstein.
