The Stirn surname is derived from the Middle High German word "stern," meaning "star."

Stirn Early Origins



The surname Stirn was first found in the regions of Hannover and Mecklenburg, where the name Stern was anciently associated with the conflicts between rival tribes. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of this early period in history, using their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their support was sought by many leaders in their search for power.
