German: status name for a village headman, from a shortened form of Middle High German schultheize. The term originally denoted a man responsible for collecting dues and paying them to the lord of the manor; it is a compound of sculd(a) ‘debt, due’ + a derivative of heiz(z)an ‘to command’. This surname is also found in some central European countries, e.g. in Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, and Slovenia, where it is more common in Slavicized forms (see 2 below), and in France (Alsace and Lorraine) and the Netherlands.
