Seeking the origin of the surname STIX? #germany

Paula Weil

Hello All,

My 3 great grandfather Solomon STIX, born 1788 in Demmelsdorf Bavaria,
immigrated on the Louis Philippe >from Le Havre arriving New York on
the 22 August 1844. The handwriting on the manifest is not totally
clear, but it does look like his listed name is STIX or STIKS.
According to a family history written by his granddaughter Aurelia
STIX RICE in 1921, Solomon took the name STIX in 1813. Can anyone
tell me the origin of the name STIX?
