Allegedly a habitational name derived from Skärlöv, a village located on the island of Öland, Kalmar County, Sweden. The name of the village is, according to very uncertain sources, said to mean Skares gård "Skare's farm". Famous bearers of this name are actor Stellan Skarsgård (b. 1951) and his actor sons Alexander (b. 1976), Gustaf (b. 1980), Bill (b. 1990), and Valter (b. 1995).
