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

From the ancient and beautiful Italian island of Sicily emerged a variety of distinguished names, including the notable surname Carboni. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves as populations grew and travel became more frequent. 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 traditional type of family name found in the region of Sicily is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, local surnames are also found. Local names, which are the least frequent of the major types of surnames found in Italy, are derived from a place-name where the original bearer once resided or held land. Often Italian local surnames bore the prefix "di," which signifies emigration from one place to another, and does not necessarily denote nobility. The Carboni family lived in the city of Naples, where Guglielmo Carbonelli was landowner of Simmari, in Calabria in 1120.

Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms in comparison with other European surnames because they reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each of which has its distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the most standard Italian surname suffix is "I", whereas in Southern Italy the most typical surname suffix is "O". Sardinian is very different from other forms of Italian and in fact, it is considered to be its own distinct language. Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes, church officials, and the bearers of names, spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. As a consequence of the major changes in the Italian language and in the local spellings of Italian surnames that occurred over the course of history, there are numerous variations for the surname Carboni. These spelling variations include Carbone, Carboni, Carbonella, Carbonelli, Carbonetti, Carbonini, Carbonìn, Carbonaro, Carbonesi, Carbonera, Carbonizi, Carbonari and many more.

First found in the year 1120 in the city of Naples, where Guglielmo Carbonelli was landowner of Simmari, in Calabria.
