Another is that it was named after the Latin adjective “Stanus-a-um” which means a region that holds water for a long period of time. The third one is that it was named after a metal that existed in an old mine in the “Chalkoma” position. The fourth is that it was named after the sheepfolds (“stanes” in greek) that every family had next to their houses.
