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. One of the most common types of family name created at this time was the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name. The surname Armenian came from the given name Armani. The personal name Armani is derived from the Germanic name Harman, which itself is derived from the Germanic words "hari" and "mann," which means "man of force."
