German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): occupational name for a tailor, literally ‘cutter’, from Middle High German snīder, German Schneider, Yiddish shnayder. The same term was sometimes used to denote a woodcutter. This surname is also established in many other parts of Europe, notably in France (Alsace and Lorraine), the Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, and Czechia. In Czechia, Slovakia, Croatia, and Slovenia it is also established in Slavicized forms (see 2 below). In part, Schneider is a Gottscheerish (i.e. Gottschee German) surname, originating from the Kočevsko region in Lower Carniola, Slovenia (see Kocevar ). Compare Sneider 1, Snider 1, and Snyder 1.
