The distinguished surname Albino can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Emilia-Romagna. Although people here were originally known by a single name, it gradually 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. The most common type of family name found in the region of Emilia-Romagna is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name. The surname Albino 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.

Albino Early Origins



The surname Albino 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.

Albino Spelling Variations



Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms in comparison with other European surnames because they reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each of which has its distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the most standard Italian surname suffix is "I", whereas in Southern Italy the most typical surname suffix is "O". Sardinian is very different from other forms of Italian and in fact, it is considered to be its own distinct language. Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes, church officials, and the bearers of names, spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. As a consequence of the major changes in the Italian language and in the local spellings of Italian surnames that occurred over the course of history, there are numerous variations for the surname Albino. These spelling variations include Albigni, Albini, Albindo, Albinati, Albinelli, Albinetti, Albino, Albinoni, Albinotti and many more.
