Antony History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Austrian, English, Italian


Similar to many Austrian family names, the distinguished surname Antony is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Austria were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The name Antony is derived from the Latin family name Antonius, which is of uncertain etymology.

Early Origins of the Antony family


The surname Antony was first found in Styria, where this family name became noted for its many branches within the region. Each house acquired a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In later history, the name became a power unto itself and members of this most influential family were elevated to the ranks of nobility.
