Origin of Schwartz, Meaning of Schwartz

Origin: Schwarz/Schwartz surname has many derivations. The word "schwarz" means "dark or black" in the German language. However, the possible origins include the following:

1. Persons from the duchy or principality of Schwarzenberg

2. Persons living in the vicinity of the Black Forest (Schwarzwald)

3. Persons having dark hair and/or dark skin

The latter is the most common origin of Schwartz family surnames.

There is apparently a distinction made between Jewish Schwarz and Germanic Schwartz, although the distinction is only noticeable when studying german records in the 1700-1900 AD period.
