Italian last Names - Page 1

The surnames of Italy have a long and interesting history. Many of them are derived from the names of famous families that once lived in the country. Others were given to people who came from other parts of Europe or the world.

Some of the most common Italian surnames include Rossi, and Bianchi. These names come from the Italian words for "red," and "white." They were probably given to people based on their physical appearance or their occupation. For example, someone with red hair might have been called Russo, while someone who worked with coal might have been called Russo.

Other popular Italian surnames include Esposito, which means "exposed," and Lombardi, which comes from the name of the region where the family originally lived. There are also many names that are derived from nicknames, such as Conti (short for contadino, or peasant), Giordano (derived from giorno, meaning "day"), and Moretti (from moro, meaning "dark-haired").

There are literally thousands of different Italian surnames out there, each with its own unique history and meaning. Have a look at them below.
