The roots of the distinguished surname Prinsloo lie in Holland. The name is derived from the royal title "prins" and the Middle Dutch "lo(o)," meaning "clearing within a forest;" thus, the term "prinsloo" would most likely denote a clearing within a royal forest. The surname was probably first borne by someone who was employed on royal lands.
