    Name Meaning

    English: from Middle English s(c)hore ‘shore, bank, coast, steep slope, cliff’ (Old English scora). The surname may be topographic for someone who lived near such a feature, or, in Lancashire and Yorkshire especially, habitational from a place so named, such as Shore in Rochdale (Lancashire) or Shore in Todmorden (Yorkshire). In southwestern England, the name is probably a variant of Score , which shares the same etymology.

    Americanized form of Jewish (Ashkenazic) Schor, Schorr or Szor, variants of Schauer .

    Americanized form of French Giard , reflecting the characteristic Canadian and American French rounding of the -ard ending. Compare Shor .
