The roots of the German surname Sternberg can be traced back to Schleswig-Holstein, where it most likely originated. The name is a compound, derived from two words, "Stern," the Middle High German word for "star," and "Berc," the Old High German word meaning "mountain." Sternberg is the name of several different places in Germany, and as a surname it indicates "one who came from Sternberg."

Sternberg Early Origins



The surname Sternberg was first found in the city of Sternberg, where the name most likely originated. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Andreas dictus Sterneberg, living north of Sternberg, in Greifswald, in 1312. The young Sternberg family was a notable family in the region, playing an instrumental role in the development of medieval society.
