The Schnapp surname is a habitational name derived from any of several places in Germany, Bohemia, and Austria named Schneeberg. These place names derived from the German word "schnee," meaning "snow," and "berg," or "mountain."

Schnapp Early Origins



The surname Schnapp was first found in Switzerland, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
