Your surnames is extremely rare in Germany: only one name in german directories. Spleit could be a variant of german surnames, very rare, like Splieth, Spliedt or Splitt.
So it could be a surname coming from the word "Splitt", in English "splinter" or "sliver".

Possibly a surname derived from an occupation or a nickname.
