The Emilia Romagna region of Italy is the locale where the Adamini 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. Adamini is one of the Italian patronymic surnames, created from the father's given name. The surname Adamini 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.

Adamini Early Origins



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