The German state of Saxony, where the distinguished surname Haintz arose, is renowned for both its beauty, industry, and economic power. However, 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 Saxony derived its name from the Germanic tribe name the Saxons who inhabited the territory after the fall of the Roman Empire. The name Haintz originates as a short form of the personal name Heinrich.

The surname Haintz was first found in Saxony, where the family gained a significant reputation for its contributions to the emerging mediaeval society.
