The Schnetz surname is derived from the Upper German word "schnitz," and refers to someone who cuts or carves wood. Thus the name was originally occupational before it came to be a family surname.

Schnetz Early Origins



The surname Schnetz was first found in Breslau, where there is a record of the name from 1360. The Schnetz surname may well have emerged independently in several regions, as evidenced by records of Eberhart der Snezzer von Waldshut in Aargau, Switzerland in 1255; Hainr. and Liutoldus fratus dictus Snezzerli who was recorded as citizens of Meersburg (Baden-Württemberg) in 1295; and Bert. dictus Snitzer, from Swabia who was mentioned in records from 1285.
