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

The name Simoni originated from the personal name Simon, itself a derivative of the Hebrew name "Sim'on," from the verb "sama" meaning "to listen." Thus, the name Simoni means "God has listened," referring to the gratitude of the parents who, having wished for a child, had their prayers answered.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Unguibus armatus in hostem
Motto Translation: Armed Against The Enemy.
