In the 10th and 11th centuries, Italy's population grew dramatically. Personal and legal confusion began to arise around identities and many found that they could no longer identify themselves merely with a single name. Hereditary surnames were the solution to this problem. Occupational names, like Azzaro, were derived from words identifying the bearer by his profession. Azzaro was a name for a person who made battle axes as it is derived from the Italian word azza, which means battle-axe.

Early Origins of the Azzaro family


The surname Azzaro 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.
