Origin, Meaning, Family History and Schneider Coat of Arms and Family Crest

This very popular German surname is an occupational name referring to one who was a tailor, cutter, or garment maker in medieval times, deriving from the German word schneiden, the Middle High German sniden, and the Old High German snidan, meaning to cut.

Schneider Coat of Arms Meaning

Two of the more prominent or common heraldic symbols depicted within the Scheinder family crests are the arrow and rose, each with their own unique meaning. Given the martial nature of the origins of Heraldry, in the identification of knights and men-at-arms it can come as no surprise that medieval weaponry of all types are frequently to be found in a coat of arms. The pheon is a specific type of arrow head with barbs and darts and hence quite distinctive in appearance. Like the other symbols related to arrows, Wade suggests the symbolism is that of “readiness for military service”, as well as dexterity and nimble wit. It may have been given those people who were skilled in archery during medieval times and the Middle Ages in Europe.

Natural objects abound in heraldry, and one category that gives especial delight are the many flowers and flowering plants that frequently occur. The rose is also of this type, being drawn, at least a little, realistically and often to very pleasing effect. It has long been present in English heraldry, and as a badge and symbol played an enormous in English history throughout the conflict between rival dynasties known as the War of the Roses. In addition to these familial uses, Wade suggests that red roses signify “beauty and grace” and the white represents “love and faith”. A heraldic rose consists of five symmetrical lobes, five barbs, and circular seed. It is likely one of the top two most common charges in heraldry, along with the fleur-de-lis. In addition to being a symbol of the English Tudor dynasty, it was also on the seal of the Protestant reformer Martin Luther. It also served as a mark of the seventh son.
