I know this surname might be German, or Austrian, but I need more information. Anyone know anything about this surname?

I have never heard of the name, it is in none of my books.
A quick search in German, Austrian, and Swiss telephone directories:
Germany: 20
Austria: 29
Switzerland: 0
You may add about 50% to get to the number of persons bearing that name.
I also tried SCHNUCK (just an idea)
Germany: 94
Austria: 1
Switzerland: 0I have no idea as to the meaning of the name. The Grimm brothers list a word "schnuck" meaning "breath, sigh." The German word "Heidschnucke" for a certain kind of sheep is obviously related.
I am afraid all of this isn't of much help ...
