Family name origins & meanings:

  • English : nickname from Middle English sterre, starre ‘star’. The word was also used in a transferred sense of a patch of white hair on the forehead of a horse, and so perhaps the name denoted someone with a streak of white hair. It is possibly also a habitational name, for someone who lived at a house distinguished by the sign of a star.
  • Jewish (Ashkenazic) : variant of Star 1 and 3.
