Skop Family History
Skop Name Meaning
Polish, Czech, and Jewish (Ashkenazic): nickname from Slavic skop ‘wether’, ‘castrated ram’. The Polish word has other meanings, denoting for example a pail and a kind of tax; the surname could also have originated with one of these senses, i.e. as an occupational name either for a maker of pails or for a tax collector.
