The distinguished surname Azzi 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. Azzi is a patronymic surname, a name derived from the father's given name. The surname Azzi came from the personal name "Azzo."

Azzi Early Origins



The surname Azzi was first found in the city of Fermo. It was here, in 1074, that Tommaso Azzolini was Bishop.
