Name Meaning

1 English (mainly Newcastle and Durham): of uncertain origin, probably a derivative of northern Middle English stang ‘pole’ (of Old Norse origin). Possible meanings include a topographic name for someone who lived by a pole or stake ( compare Stakes ) or an occupational name for someone armed with one. Alternatively, it may be a nickname for someone who had ‘ridden the stang’, i.e. been carried on a pole through the streets as an object of derision, in punishment for some misdemeanor. However, this custom is of uncertain antiquity.2 Orcadian: probably a habitational name from a minor place called Stanagar in the parish of Stromness.3 German: occupational name for a maker of shafts for spears and the like, from an agent derivative of Middle High German stange ‘pole’, ‘shaft’.
