Where did the Italian Mannino family come from? What is the Italian Mannino family crest and coat of arms? When did the Mannino family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Mannino family history?From the historical and fascinating Italian region of Venice emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Mannino family. 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 common type of family name found in the region of Venice 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 Mannino came from a fierce or strong man. In some cases, the name Manni may have arisen as an occupational name.
Surnames that originated in Italy are characterized by an enormous number of spelling variations. Some of these are derived from regional traditions and dialects. Northern names, for instance, often end in "o", while southern names tend to end in "i". Other variations come from the fact the medieval scribes tended to spell according to the sound of words, rather than any particular set of rules. The recorded variations of Mannino include Manni, Manno, Mannelli, Mannello, Mannetti, Mannini, Mannino, Mannucci, Mannuzzi, Mannoni, Mannone, Manneschi, Manelli, Manenti, Manucci, Mannocci, Maniate, Manna, Mannamo, Mannina and many more.
First found in the city of Cremona. The Manna family records date back to 1037.
