Last name origin & meaning:

Japanese: usually written with characters meaning ‘rock well’, also with characters meaning ‘resides in a rocky place’; the latter is the original meaning.

The name originated variously: in Shimotsuke (now Tochigi prefecture), from the Utsunomiya branch of the northern Fujiwara, who dwelt there; from a branch of the Taira clan in Musashi (now Tōkyō and Saitama prefectures); and others. Bearers of the name Ishii are also found in the northeast, around the Inland Sea, and in the Ryūkyū Islands.
