From the historical and fascinating Italian region of Venice emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Aquilino family. The people of this region were originally known only by a single name, but it became necessary for them to take on 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 Aquilino surname evolved from a nickname; these usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The surname Aquilino came from a person who had the sight of an eagle. The surname Aquila is derived from the word aquila, which means eagle. Thus, the surname could also be a name for a spot where eagles were often seen or for an owner of an eagle. The surname Aquila is also of local origin, derived from the city of L'Aquila, which is the capital of the region of Abruzzi in the center/south of the peninsula.

The surname Aquilino was first found in the 11th century at Benevento, a city north of Naples. Riccardo Aquila was master of much territory in this area in 1090.

Surnames that originated in Italy are characterized by an enormous number of spelling variations. Some of these are derived from regional traditions and dialects. Northern names, for instance, often end in "o", while southern names tend to end in "i". Other variations come from the fact the medieval scribes tended to spell according to the sound of words, rather than any particular set of rules. The recorded variations of Aquilino include Aquila, Aquilani, Aquilante, Aquilanti, Aquili, Aquilina, Aquilini, Aquilino, Aquilone, Aquiloni, Aquilotti, D'Aquila, dell'Aquila, Aquilar and many more.
