Named after the Biblical "Stephen".

My name, "Stephen," seems to be confusing for some people to spell and/or pronounce because some people seem to think that the "ph" should be pronounced like the letter "f."

In what year was the original name, Stefanus, invented, after which, apparently, its new variations branched out?
