among other theories, it probably originated as a
version of "hakohen", so you might find that your
KLEIN family are kohanim.
Theoretically possible, but not too probable. Klein
means small or short, very common in Germanic areas,
just as Kis(s) is very common in Hungary. I found
that kohanim were overwhelmingly called Kohn's.
