From Old High German stein, from Proto-Germanic *stainaz. Cognates include German Stein, English stone, Dutch steen, Swedish sten. The alternation between the stems Steen and Steng is due to the Luxembourgish velarisation of -n- that took place only in open syllables. (The plural used to have the ending -e, as it still does in German.) Similar alternations are found in some other words (e.g. Schwäin), but Steen is the only one that retains distinct stems for singular and plural.
