About the Shore surname

Americanized spelling of Ashkenazic Jewish S(c)hor(r) or Szor, variants of Schauer.

German and Austrian: occupational name for an official inspector, for example the official overseer of a market, from Middle High German schouwer, an agent derivative of schouwen ‘to inspect’.
