The distinguished surname Von fleckenstein is German in origin, and its use can be traced back to the province of the Rhineland. The name is derived from two Middle High German words: "vleck," meaning "patch, spot," and "sten," meaning "stone, rock." Thus, the surname literally means "stony patch," and was most likely originally borne by someone living near a patch of rock.

Von fleckenstein Early Origins



The surname Von fleckenstein was first found in the region of the Rhineland, where it is believed to have first emerged in the early Middle Ages. The first recorded bearer of the name was Conrad zum Fleckenstein, who was recorded as being a goldsmith in the city of Speyer in the year 1402. The young Von fleckenstein family was instrumental during this early period, contributing greatly to the development of medieval society.
