Dramatic increases in the Italian population in the 10th and 11th centuries caused much confusion between similarly named people. Up to that time people had only used single names: the addition of hereditary surnames was an easy solution to the problem. New names were taken from things that identified people easily, like where they lived, or, as in the case of Azzarelli, what work they did. Azzarelli was an occupational name for a person who made battle axes as it is derived from the Italian word azza, which means battle-axe.

Azzarelli Early Origins



The surname Azzarelli was first found in at Novara, capital city of the province of Novara in the Piedmont region in northwest Italy in 1312, with Pietro Azario, a count and wealthy lawyer, registered in that year.
