The distinguished surname Alverio originated in an area of Italy, known as the Papal States. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people 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 name Alverio, like many surnames began as a personal name. A'lvarois is a Spanish personal name of Germanic origin, which is composed of the elements "alla," meaning "all," and "waria," meaning "protection." Other instances of the name derive from the Visigothic personal name "Alver," which comes from the elements "all" and "wer," meaning "all true."

Alverio Early Origins



The surname Alverio was first found in the 14th century in the city of Todi, which is south of Perugia in the region of Umbria. At this time the Alviano family moved to Orvieto where they became lords of the Alviano castle and of the lands around it which were called Riofreddo and Mandola. The name appears most frequently in Campania and Calabria and in the city of Naples in particular.
