Audino is one of the surnames to have emerged from the beautiful and historical Italian region of Tuscany
. During the Middle Ages, as populations grew and travel between regions became more frequent, the people of Tuscany
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 names created at that time in the region of Tuscany. The surname Audino came from the given name Alda, which means "wise and experienced."
Early Origins of the Audino family
The surname Audino was first found in Florence (Italian: Firenze), where the main branch of the family originated with Taddeo Alderotti, a physician born in 1223.
