Meaning and Origin of: Stentz

Save Name

Family name origins & meanings:

  • Eastern German : from a reduced pet form of the Slavic personal name Stanisław (see Stanislaw).
  • South German : unexplained. In Germany the spelling Stenz (pronounced ‘stents’) is more common than Stentz, and it is likely that some immigrant families with that name may have added the -t- in order to preserve the original pronunciation.
