    Name Meaning

    Americanized form of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) Schneider ‘tailor’ and of its Slavicized (Czech, Slovak, Slovenian, and Croatian) form Šnajder (Czech mostly Šnajdr). The Slovenian and Croatian surname is in most cases derived from the dialect loanword šnajder ‘tailor’. Compare Sneider 1 and Snyder 1.

    Dutch: variant, mostly Americanized, of Snieder or Snijder ‘tailor’ (see Snyder 2).

    In some cases probably also an Americanized form of Slovenian Žnider: variant of Žnidar, from žnidar ‘tailor’, an archaic word of German origin (see Schneider , compare 1 above and Znidarsic ).
