wow so Schulz is not part jewish? ”Schulz” sounds very Ashkenazi Jewish from Germany or Austria
Schulz actually isn’t particularly Jewish of a name; it’s seen as much more ethnic German than anything.
One of the commonest German surnames. Sometimes Jewish.
Andrew speculates about 4 minutes into this video that his German ancestors might have Ashkenazi Jewish heritage:
yeah it can totally be true, not saying there is no ethnic German who looks like him, take footballer Hummels as an example(also his Scottish and Irish ancestors could be heavily Celtic with little Viking influence), but i was under the impression that his last name was very Jewish-sounding
