Benzion Kaganoff in A Dictionary of Jewish Names, states the following:

STEIBERG (G) There are many places by the name in Germany, and there is
one town in Hungary. There is actually a Stone Mountain (Steinberg)
near Brody, Galicia. Sometimes the name is taken >from a place where
there was a hill of stones. Best wishes,

Zeev Raphael, Haifa
