The population of Italy increased dramatically in the 10th and 11th centuries, and people began to travel and meet others with the same names. This confusion caused problems in personal and legal matters, and many took on hereditary surnames as a solution. These new names often came from words that identified people by a physical characteristic or other obvious trait. Barbozza was a nickname surname for a bearded person, derived from the words barba and bella, which together mean beautiful beard.

Barbozza Early Origins



The surname Barbozza 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.
