The surname Sholle is a nickname surname; it is derived from a nickname given to the original bearer. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character. The distinguished name Sholle is derived from the Old German word "scolla" or "scollo," which meant "lump of earth."

Sholle Early Origins



The surname Sholle was first found in Hessen, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System. Chronicles first mention Heinrich Scholle of Bretten around 1207 and Ludeke Scholver of Luebeck in 1326. One of the roots of the name is "Ackerscholle," which means "soil" or "earth."

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtus sola nobilitas
Motto Translation: Virtue is the only nobility.
