Type of Name:

Charles Schenck

Male

Additional Information:

German and Dutch: from Middle High German, Middle Dutch schenke, ‘cupbearer’, ‘wine server’ (from Old High German scenko, from scenken ‘to pour out or serve’), hence an occupational name for a cupbearer or server of wine. As a German name it also denotes a tavernkeeper. In another development, similar to English Butler, the word came to be used as an honorary title for a high court official, and some cases of the surname may have arisen from this use.

My grandfather's branch of the family changed the pronunciation of their last name to "sk ink". He was born in Burlington, Iowa, in the late 1800's. He had a family coat of arms and also a sword with Schenck van Nydeck on it. He said there was a castle with the family name in the Netherlands. My grandfather's name was Charles Plume Schenck. He was chief of staff at the Harris Hospital in Ft. Worth, Texas in the the 1960's. I have numerous cousins in Ft. Worth with the Schenck last name.

Inherited the pronunciation Skenk - but softened the sound to Shaynk - which I understood is the
German pronunciation, and the Dutch Skank.
