The surname Lintz was first found in Saxony, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. The name Lintz, like many surnames, began as a personal name (before surname usage began). Lanzo means "land" or "nation," which suggests that the name is probably a shortened form of some other name which contains that element.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Lanzo, Lando, Lantz, Lanze, Lanz, Lantze, Lanzius, Lantzius, Lantsing and many more.
