The name Kleinertz comes from the German province known as the Rhineland. In pre-medieval times, the German people used only one name, but as the population increased, hereditary surnames became necessary for people to maintain unique identities. Kleinertz is a nickname surname, a style of name based on an eke-name, or added name, that described a characteristic of its original bearer. Kleinertz is a name for a small or short person deriving its origin from the German word "klien," which means "small."

The surname Kleinertz was first found in the Rhineland, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society.
