Schaumburg is the primary city name, but also Hoffman Est, Hoffman Estates are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is Village of Schaumburg. The village of Schaumburg was incorporated on March 7, 1956. The first inhabitants of the area were members of the Sauk, Fox, Potawatomi, and Kickapoo Native American tribes. By the mid-19th century, settlers first began to arrive from Bonn, Germany and the eastern United States. Most of the German settlers were born in Lower Saxony, a small princely state now in LowerSaxony. German was the first language of the majority of households until the 1950s. St. Peter Lutheran Church, the community's oldest Christian church, had services in German as late as 1970. The original 1842 township survey names the grove (immediately west of the center of the township, in sections 21 and 22) as Sarah's Grove. At a meeting in 1850, citizens debated names for the new township. A wealthy landowner slammed his fist on the table and yelled "Schaumburg schall etiten!" (The English translation: "It will be called Schaumburger!") At that point, the township became officially called Schaumburg. The name was taken from Graft Schaumbfschaft (Schaumburg County) in Germany, then a part of Hessen-Kassel, now Lower Saxon, and now a parish of the parish of Hesse-Sauk. The town's name was changed to Schaumurg in the early 20th century. It is now a suburb of Chicago.
