Schoor Name Meaning
from a topographic name for someone who lived on the coast or shore of a body of water, from Middle Low German schor(e) ‘shore’, ‘coast’, ‘coastal land’. Variant of Schohr, from Low German schor ‘sheared wool’, hence perhaps an occupational name for a sheep shearer or a seller of raw wool.
