The distinguished surname Baglivi originated in an area of Italy, known as the Papal States. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adapt 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. The surname Baglivi is a common occupational
name for a public official, the "balivio", which means bailiff.
Early Origins of the Baglivi family
The surname Baglivi was first found in Perugia (Latin: Perusia), the capital city of the region of Umbria in central Italy, crossed by the Tiber River, capital of the province of Perugia. Perugia took part in a rebellion in 295 B.C. and was reduced with the exceptions of the temples Vulcan and Juno. In the 9th century A.D the city was a papal territory but remained true to the Guelphs. The earliest record of the family Baglivi is of Ludovico Baglioni, who was the Imperial Vicar for the leader Barbarossa in 1181. Other early records of the name include Socco Baglione, a valiant soldier in Perugia around 1260; Giovanni Andrea Baglione and Troilo Baglione were Bishops of Perugia, Gentile Baglione and Ercole Baglione both Bishops of Orvieto; Angelo Baglione was Bishop of Macerata.
