Prior to the 10th and 11th centuries, the people of the region of Lombardy, Italy generally went by a single name. However, as people began to travel more, and the population grew, many took on hereditary surnames. Nicknames, like Barbato, were an easy and popular way to give people another name. They came from words that identified people by a physical characteristic or other identifiable trait. Barbato was a name for a bearded person, derived from the words barba and bella, which together mean beautiful beard.

Barbato Early Origins



The surname Barbato was first found in Milan (Italian: Milano, Milanese: Milan), the second-most populous city in Italy and the capital of Lombardy where the earliest records date back to 1145 with Filippo Barbo, a castle owner and leader of the town of Cremona.
