Auguste History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Italian, Portuguese


The surname Auguste is an Italian patronymic surname; that is, it was a name created from the first name of the father. Auguste is derived from the personal name Agostino. This personal name is derived from the Latin word "augustus," which means "favored with good omens."

Early Origins of the Auguste family


The surname Auguste was first found in Ferrara, a city and comune in Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy, capital city of the Province of Ferrara. One of the first records of the name was Eugenio Agostini who was listed there in 923. Also around this time, Alessandro Agostini was secretary of the Duke and another Alessandro Agostini, of the same family in Ferrara, was the Councillor of Alfonso I.

The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Auguste include Agosta, Agostani, Agostaro, Agostena, Agosti, Agostinetti, Agostini, Agostinis, Agostino, Agostinone, Agosto, Agostoni, Agustoni, Augusti, Augusto, Augustoni, D'Agostino, DeAgostini and many more.
