Arena Early Origins



The surname Arena was first found in various parts of Southern Italy including early references in Sicily, and the city of Naples. The name eventually moved further north, and those members of the family that lived there adopted the northern tradition of ending their name in "i," whereas those that stayed in the south kept the southern suffixes. The name Arena means "sand" and was probably first given to someone who lived near a beach or sandy area.
