The name Feuerstein derives from the German word "feuer" meaning "fire," and was probably an occupational name for someone who worked with fire such as a smith, a fire lighter, or a person who took care of the heating a household. The word "stein" means "stone;" and so, together "feuer" and "stein," can mean "flint."

Feuerstein Early Origins



The surname Feuerstein was first found in Austria, where the family gained a significant reputation for its contributions to the emerging mediaeval society. The name became prominent as many branches of the family founded separate houses and acquired estates in various regions, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. Individual bearers of the name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Wernher Fürstein in 1160.
