A variety of distinguished and notable names have emerged from the beautiful and historical Italian region of Tuscany, including the notable surname Audia. During the Middle Ages, as populations grew and travel between regions became more frequent, people in Tuscany, who had been going by a single name, found it necessary to adopt a second name to identify themselves and their families. This process of adopting fixed hereditary surnames in Italy began in the 10th and 11th centuries, but it was not completed until the modern era. The patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, was one of the most common name types of name created in this region. The surname Audia was created from the given name Alda, which means "wise and experienced."

Audia Early Origins



The surname Audia was first found in Florence (Italian: Firenze), where the main branch of the family originated with Taddeo Alderotti, a physician born in 1223.
