    I am trying to find the meaning and possible specific origin of the surname Skutca! My father-in-law said that his grandfather is the one that added the T to the name and originally the name was Skuca. I have looked all over the internet for any possible information and found nothing. Also, this family were originally from Fayette County, Texas and then moved to Matagorda County. I am really hoping someone at this site can help. Thanks.

    My guess:


    from German der Schutz (defence, shield, aegis)

    or der Schütz, Schütze (shooter, Sagittarius)

    Other spelling variants: Šuca, Šutz, Schkutz
