The German surname of SCHATZ is an occupational name for a treasurer, derived from the German word SCHATZ (treasure). It may also have been a nickname for a rich man (or ironically for a miser), or for a well-liked person, perhaps a ladies favourite. As a Jewish surname it was from the Hebrew phrase 'SHeliach-T-Sibur' 'emissary of the congregation' an epithet of the cantor. Other spellings of the name include SCHACHT, SCHATZLER, SCHATZL, SCHATZMANN, SHATZ, SZATZ, SHATSKI, SHATSKY, SHATZOV, SCHATT and SCHATZEL, to name but a few. Surnames which were derived from ancient Germanic personal names have the same meaning in many languages. The court of Charlemagne (Charles the Great, king of the Franks (742-814) was Christian and Latin speaking). The vernacular was the Frankish dialect of Old High German, and the personal names in use were Germanic and vernacular. These names were adopted in many parts of northwest Europe, particularly among the noble ruling classes. Hereditary surnames were found in Germany in the second half of the 12th century - a little later than in England and France. It was about the 16th century that they became stabilized. A minor notable of the name is the American Beulah SCHACHT, born 23rd February, 1920. He is a journalist and feature writer for the St. Louis Globe Democrat and featured on a radio show and the television show KNOX-TV. He is a member of the Board of the Press Club of Metropolitan St. Louis and of the Grand Jury Association on St. Louis. German or Teutonic heraldry extended its sphere of influence over central Europe and spread into Scandinavia. It is most notable for its design and treatment of crests, most of which reflect the arms in the charge or tinctures (colours) or both, which is unknown in British heraldry. Teutonic Europe assembled many arms on a single shield, each bearing its corresponding crest on a helmet.
