Medieval Silesia is the birthplace of the noble Stultz family. The Stultz surname is derived from the German word "stoltz," which means "proud," and as such, it was most likely originally a nickname, which became a hereditary surname.


The surname Stultz was first found in Silesia, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging province which would later play a role in the national conflicts of the area.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Stoltz, Stolz, Stoltze, Stolze, Stolt, Stolte, Stoetzel, Stoltzel, Stolzel, Stolzer and many more.
