The Emilia Romagna region of Italy is the locale where the Albinati 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. Albinati is one of the Italian patronymic surnames, created from the father's given name. The surname Albinati came from a "pale" or "pure" person, and is a variant of the Latin personal name Albinus which was originally derived from the Latin albus, which means white.

Albinati Early Origins



The surname Albinati was first found in the tiny town of Sestola, just south of Bologna. In 1629 the Albinelli family was registered here. This same year the family moved to Modena and were immediately made nobility. They were also made citizens of the city of Ferrara, nearby. Also in this year, Giambattista Albinelli was made a Cappuccinian monk in Modena.

Albinati Spelling Variations



In comparison with other European surnames, Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms. They reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each with its own distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the typical Italian surname suffix is "i", whereas in Southern Italy it is "o". Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes and church officials often spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules.
