Name Meaning

English (Essex and Middlesex):

habitational name from Staines (Middlesex) and from Steane (Northamptonshire). Both placenames appear to derive from Old English stān ‘stone, rock’, though the development of the vowel and the addition of -(e)s have not been adequately explained. Compare Steen .

topographic name from Middle English stanes ‘stones’, used either for someone who lived near prominent stones, or for someone from a minor locality so named. The reference may be to milestones on the Roman road that ran through the town.
