The distinguished and ancient German surname Kleinhenz is composed of two elements: "Klein," meaning "small," and "Henz," a diminutive of the Germanic personal name "Heinrich." It is likely that this name was first used to distinguish between a father and a son both bearing the name "Heinrich" or "Henz."

Kleinhenz Early Origins



The surname Kleinhenz was first found in South Germany, where it is throughout to have emerged during the Early Middle Ages. The first recorded bearer of the name was dictus Clainhainze, who was a resident of Salem in the year 1282. The young Kleinhenz family was instrumental during these formative years, playing a major role in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
