A multitude of prestigious family names, such as the surname Goldstein, were formed in the lands which became the modern state of Silesia. In the medieval era, Germany was fragmented and inhabited by numerous barbarian tribes who fought amongst themselves for control of the land. The ancient dukedom of Silesia derived its name from a Germanic tribe named the Silingers, who occupied Silesia between the 2nd and the 6th centuries.

The surname Goldstein was first found in the city of Halle, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Goldstein, Goldstien, Goldsteen, Goldstine, Goldsteiner, Goldenstein, Goldensteiner and many more.
