The surname Strein is from Germanic origin, signifiying a wanderer or roamer.
Streun(er) is another form of this name which was first a nickname for one
who had led an unsettled life.
A prussian family of this name was ennobled under the title of
Strein von Schwarzenau in 1637.
Their pedigree begins with Johann Strein, who died in 1414.
