The name Lenzenhuber is rather rare in the United States with around 20 people using it. There were two immigrations, the first family ended up around St Louis, Missouri while the second (my family in 1924) around Albany New York. The two families were supposedly connected back around Bavaria in the 19th century. The Missouri family continues to grow with the name while Louis is the last of the New York family to use the name. Lenz in German means Lent or spring time while Lenzenhuber seems to have no translation I have been able to find. My mother claimed it meant a mountain spring but I have found no verification. I even hung out in bars in Germany asking people, purely for research. (And maybe the beer) 
Ludwig & Gertrude Lenzenhuber were long time owner operators of the Ace Pastry Shop on New Scotland Avenue between Ontario and Quail. Their son (my father) worked there and at one time or another both his sisters Inge and Mary Lou. My fathers short stint in the Navy during WWII allowed him access to rationed sugar which helped my Grandfather start his bakery.
