Where did the Italian Baros family come from? What is the Italian Baros family crest and coat of arms? When did the Baros family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Baros family history?

From the historical and enchanting Italian region of Tuscany emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Baros family. During the Middle Ages, as populations grew and travel between regions became more frequent, the people of Tuscany found it necessary to adopt a second name to identify themselves and their families. The process of adopting fixed hereditary surnames was not complete until the modern era, but the use of hereditary family names in Italy began in the 10th and 11th centuries. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Although the most common type of family name found in Tuscany is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, the nickname type of surname is also frequently found. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The surname Baros is a name for a courageous or brave person having derived from the Latin word "barus."

Italian surnames come in far more variations than the names of most other nationalities. Regional traditions and dialects are a decisive factor in this characteristic. For example, northern names tend to end in "o", while southern in "i". Also important, but not unique to Italy, was the fact that before dictionaries and the printing press most scribes simply spelled words according to their sounds. The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Baros include Barone, Baronio, Varone, Varoni, Varuni, Varone, Baroncelli, Baronchelli, Baroncini, Barelli, Barello, Barel, Barella, Barellini, Barettin, Baruzzi, Baret, Barettini, Barucci, Baruzzo, Barusso, Barocci, Baronti, Barontini, Baroni and many more.

First found in the town of Baroncello, just outside the historic city of Florence. Earliest records tell of the family Baroncelli, who owned a castle in Baroncello, and moved to Florence in the 11th century. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
