The distinguished surname Aurelio can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Venice. The people here were known by only a single name until it became necessary for them to adopt a second name to identify themselves as populations grew and travel became more frequent. The process of adopting fixed 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. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Aurelio is a patronymic surname, a name derived from the father's given name. The surname Aurelio came from the first name Aurello, the ancient Latin cognomen Aurellius. The Latin given name Aurellius comes from the words aurum, which means gold and aurora, which means dawn or light.

Aurelio Early Origins



The surname Aurelio was first found in Aquileia in 421, where Marco Aureli was a government consul. This surname is believed to have developed before this period in Rome, making it one of the oldest surviving surnames.

Aurelio Spelling Variations



Enormous variation in spelling and form characterizes those Italian names that originated in the medieval era. This is caused by two main factors: regional tradition, and inaccuracies in the recording process. Before the last few hundred years, scribes spelled names according to their sounds. Spelling variations were the unsurprising result. The variations of Aurelio include Aureli, Aurelio, Auregli, Aurìlia, Aureliani, Auria, Aurelius, Aurilio and many more.
