Arata Early Origins



The surname Arata was first found in the north of Italy, particularly Liguria, a small region which hugs the coast south of Piedmont and west of Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany. Though it is far more common in the north, the name does occasionally appear in the south. When it does appear in the south, it is usually spelled with an "o" at the end, whereas the other variations generally come from the north. The name is most likely taken from the name of a place, such as "Terra Arata," a place whose name means "fertile or plowed land," but it could also come from the Italian word "aratore," meaning "plowman."
