Origin: Germanic, I've been told that possibly the Snapp name is an adaptation from 'Schnauppe' and that the name was given to makers of schnapps liquor in Germany, which is kind of funny because the descendants who arrived in the U.S. in 1733 (within 1 year accuracy) were religious zealots of some sort. The first house built and occupied by the original snapp emigrees still stands (I've been told by other snapps online) in Fairfax, VA. The original descendants were father and son. I think the house is brick, but am not sure. I hope this is helpful. There are Snapps in California and TN who know vastly more about Snapp family geneology.

Origin of Unk, Meaning of Unk

Origin: Junker from Jung+Herr originally meaning young nobleman.

The American Heritage dictionary states that Younker, as an English word, archaicly mean young nobleman.
It is doubtful, however, that this was ever used as an English surname.
