The origin of this name is somewhat uncertain; it almost certainly comes from the Old High German word "sleht," but this word has two different meanings. The first is "direct or natural," so the name may have originated as a nickname for someone who was straightforward in his manner. The other meaning is "flat," and there are several areas around Germany named for the word, so the name may have been given to a man from any of these places.
