Hi. I think that Eppenstein derives >from Epstein which is a precious stone.
Ep means precious and Stein is a stone. Eppenstein is a variation of that.
I think.
Lavinthal is a variation, I think, of Levinthal which is based on Levin and
is an elaboration on the basic Levin name which is the hereditary name for
the tribe of priests.
Hope that that helps

Shalom to all,
I would like to know if anyone knows what these surnames mean?
LAVANTHAL, EPPENSTEIN, LOEBEN.
