The roots of the distinguished German surname Stentz lie in the province of Silesia. The name is derived from "Stenz" or "Stenzel," both short forms of the personal name "Stenzlaw" or "Stanislaw," and indicates "son of Stenzel."

Stentz Early Origins



The surname Stentz was first found in Silesia, where the name is thought to have first emerged. It was frequent as both a surname and a personal name in most cities of the region, particularly in Liegnitz. The young Stentz family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of mediaeval Silesian society.
