The Schnare surname may be derived from the German word "Schnur," meaning "string." It is supposed that the name was originally occupational for someone who either made string, or made objects using string. However, the name may also have derived from the German "schnurr," which means "funny," or "amusing," and in this case, would likely have been a nickname, which later became a surname.

Schnare Early Origins



The surname Schnare was first found in Mergentheim, in present day, Baden-Württemberg, where there was reference to a Rüdiger Snurre of Igersheim in 1298. Other records include Johann Snorre recorded as living in Rostock in 1304; and Hainlin Schnurrer, citizen of Stuttgart, on record in 1404.
