The Emilia Romagna region of Italy is the locale where the Adami surname was first found. Although the people in this region were at one time known by only a single, personal name, it later became necessary for them 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. Adami is one of the Italian patronymic surnames, created from the father's given name. The surname Adami came from the personal name Adam, the first person who used the name. The surname is further derived from the Latin Adamus which means earth.

Adami Early Origins



The surname Adami was first found in Fermo, a city found on the coast of the Adriatic Sea.

They reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each with its own distinctive features.
