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

From the historical and enchanting Italian region of the islands of Sicily emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Pagliaro family. 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 common type of family name found in Sicily 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 Pagliaro is a name for a person who frequently wore a straw hat or who had straw colored hair. The name Paglia is derived from the Italian word paglia, which means straw.
