'Snyder' comes originally from the German name 'SCHNEIDER', which is the third most common surname in Germany. Other Americanized forms of the Schneider name are: Snider, Sneider, and Snijder. The trade origin of the name is 'tailor' in German. Snyders can be found all over the United States today and have a proud lineage of helping to build this country. Many can trace their ancestry back to before the American Revolution, to the early colonial settlements in Pennsylvania and New York.
"Our family changed their name from 'Schneider' to 'Snyder' when they left Germany to come to America, in the Colonial Period prior to the Revolution."

"Many Snyders fought in the American Revolution and helped the US gain independence from Britain."

(Noun) A Snyder is a person whose boundaries are limitless. They can achieve anything they desire. Intelligence, Athleticism, & Beauty are all very common attributes of a Snyder. The Dos Equis beer commercials, the most interesting man in the world, were actually based mostly in fact about a Snyder. Despite having an "aura" of greatness, Snyders are very humble & respectful people. They are aware that to achieve, they must sacrifice & work hard. They gain only by their own merit, not off of the sweat of another. A Snyder will lift up his neighbor to help them succeed rather than gloat in their own success. Some Snyders are the life of the party, while others are simply great listeners. A Snyder is a great friend/companion to have.
In life there are leaders, followers, & Snyders. Snyders tend to lead the leaders.

Similar but more unsettling than "Santorum," a frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex, mixed with blood.
Mary found evidence of Snyder in her bed, so she washed the sheets and made an appointment with her gynecologist.

After a long night of freaky sex, Mary and Joseph noticed the Santorum stain actually was Snyder, and they were scared.
