- Stiria (dated)
From Medieval Latin Styria, variant of Stiria, from Stira (“the Austrian city of Steyr”) + -ia (forming place names). Although no longer part of Styria, Steyr was the site of the court of the margraves of the March of Styria. It was itself named for its position at the confluence of the Steyr and Enns rivers.
