Name Meaning

English (London), Flemish, Dutch, and North German: patronymic from the personal name Steven . The surname of Flemish origin is also found in the Walloon part of Belgium. In North America, the English form of the surname has also absorbed some like-sounding Jewish names and various other European cognates, e.g. Greek Stefanidis , Serbian Stevanović (see Stevanovic ), Slovenian and Slovak Štefanič (see Stefanic ).
