    Name Meaning

    Slovenian: variant of Strle (and in part also an Americanized form this), from a derivative of streljati ‘to shoot’ or strel ‘shot’ or perhaps strela ‘thunderbolt, lightning’, hence a nickname for a shooter or a bowman (compare Strelec ) or perhaps for someone who habitually used the expression (gromska) strela ‘well I'll be blowed’.

    South German: nickname derived from Middle High German ster, sterre ‘ram’, probably for an obstinate person (see Sterr ).

    German: diminutive of Stehr .
