The distinguished surname Luongo 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, 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 Luongo came from a person who was tall and thin. The surname Longo is derived from the Old Italian word longo, which means long, tall.

Luongo Early Origins



The surname Luongo was first found in Rome (Italian: Roma), the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, where earliest records date to the 10th century, when Giovan-Jacopo, Bonaventura, and Filippo Longhi moved out of the city.
