Where did the German Schottel family come from? What is the German Schottel family crest and coat of arms? When did the Schottel family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Schottel family history?

The distinguished German surname Schottel is of three distinct origins. Firstly, the name Schottel is derived from the German "Schottel," meaning "Scotsman." In this instance, the name would have been originally borne by one of the many Scottish immigrants to Germany during the Middle Ages. The name Schottel may also be derived from the Low German word "Schottel," meaning "a floodgate or drain," and would therefore have been initially borne by someone living near a floodgate. Finally, the name may be derived from "Schotte," the name of a town located in Giessen; in this instance, the initial bearer would have been a resident of this town.
