Lion Castle

Meaning of Launstein.?

My grandfather asked me to track down the original meaning of his family name Launstein. I looked in German names, Jewish names, Polish names, and I've found nothing. I've tried geneology.com, specialty surname wensites, and all the big research names. Can someone help?

It comes from the place-name Lauenstein in Geising, Germany (about 40 km. south of Dresden).

The origin of the place-name is slightly obscure, most probably it derives from the words for Lion+Castle. Old spellings include Levenstyn (before 1289), Lewenstein (1320), Leuwenstein (1372), Lauwensteyn (1386), Lawenstein (1389), Lauwinsteyn (1412), Lawenstein (1485) and Laustein (1515).

--------[edit]------------
Turns out there is another Lauenstein in Salzhemmendorf, in Hameln-Pyrmont, Lower Saxony. Makes no difference to the meaning though.
Good Luck!
