The distinguished surname Albani can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Venice. The people here were known by only a single name until it 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. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Albani is a patronymic surname, a name derived from the father's given name. The surname Albani came from someone who is named after the medieval Latin name Albinus which is derived from alba, which means white or dawn.

Albani Early Origins



The surname Albani was first found in the city of Triest where the Albani family lived in the 10th century. With the barbaric invasions around Triest, the family relocated to the city of Venice.

Enormous variation in spelling and form characterizes those Italian names that originated in the medieval era. This is caused by two main factors: regional tradition, and inaccuracies in the recording process. Before the last few hundred years, scribes spelled names according to their sounds. Spelling variations were the unsurprising result. The variations of Albani include Albano, Albani, Albanelli, and Albanis and others.
