The distinguished surname Arbore can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Emilia Romagna
. 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. Arbore is one of the Italian patronymic
surnames, created from the father's given name. The surname Arbore came from the personal name
Albert, which means "noble and bright."
