Prinze Early Origins



The surname Prinze was first found in Silesia, where the family became noted for its many branches within the region. Some houses of the name even acquired status and influence which rivaled that of the landed aristocracy. In their later history some branches were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they distinguished themselves through their contributions to the social, political, and economic developments of the nation. Like many surnames, the name Prinze began as a nickname, from the German "prinz," meaning "prince." The nickname may have been given to one who had a princely demeanor, or it may have been an honorary "title" won in some contest of skill.
