Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi (1745 – 1812), founded the ChabadHasidic movement in 1775. His son, Rabbi Dovber Schneuri (1773 – 1827), the second Chabad Rebbe, adopted the "Schneuri" surname after his father's first name. The first to use the "Schneersohn" surname was Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, the son-in-law of Rabbi Dovber and the grandson of Rabbi Schneur Zalman and the third Chabad Rebbe.
