Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Noviello family history?The distinguished surname Noviello can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Venice. 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. The surname Noviello came from the personal name Novello. The Italian word "novello" is derived from the Latin "novellus," which means "new."
Spelling variations of this family name include: Novelli, Novello, Novel, Noviello, Novella, Novèl, Novellis, Novelloni, Novellucci, Novi and many more.
