The roots of the German surname Sterneberg 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." Sterneberg is the name of several different places in Germany, and as a surname it indicates "one who came from Sterneberg."
