About the Stephens surname

Stephen or Steven (pronounced /ˈstiːvən/) is a masculine first name, derived from the Greek name Στέφανος (Stephanos) meaning "crown, garland", in turn from the Greek word "στέφανος", meaning "wreath, crown, honour, reward", literally "that which surrounds or encompasses". The use of the noun was first recorded in Homer's Iliad.
