Schottlander History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The distinguished German surname Schottlander is of three distinct origins. Firstly, the name Schottlander is derived from the German "Schottlander," 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 Schottlander may also be derived from the Low German word "Schottlander," 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.

Early Origins of the Schottlander family


The surname Schottlander was first found in Baden, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
