Origins Available: English, German


The Stolle surname comes from the Middle High German/Middle Low German word "stolle," meaning a "support" or "frame." As such, the name may have been an occupational name for a carpenter, or perhaps a nickname for a rigid person.

Stolle Early Origins



The surname Stolle was first found in Switzerland, in the canton of Zurich, where the name Stolle was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches in Bavaria, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
