The surname Abruzzese was first found in the area of Abruzzi, in the Papal States, from which the family took their name. It is most likely that the family left this area and then took the name Abruzzi, as in "the person from Abruzzi." The name quickly spread through the peninsular part of Italy and it can be found throughout Italy today. The variations of the name which end in "i" tend to be from the north, while those ending in "o" are from the south.

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 Abruzzese include Abruzzese, Abruzzi, Abruzzo, Abbruzzi, Abbruzzo, Apruzzi, Appruzzi, Abruzzesi, Abbruzzese, Abbruzzesi, Apruzzese, Bruzzese, Bruzzesi, Bruzi and many more.
