It may be a nickname for an easily excitable person, an occupational name for the warden of a park or piece of common land (from the same word in the sense ‘protection’; compare Schuetz), or a nickname from the same word in the sense ‘clever’. German (Schür): see Scheuer. Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Shor.
