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

The distinguished surname Carpanini originated in an area of Italy, known as the Papal States. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adapt 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 are characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Although the most traditional type of family name found in the region of the Papal States 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, but does not necessarily denote nobility. The Carpanini family lived in the unique region of the Papal States. Earliest records date back to 962, when Udalrico Carpegna received 24 castles in the areas of Montefeltro and Romagna from the Emperor Ottone.
