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.
