Italy's population grew considerably in the 10th and 11th centuries. As a result, confusion among similarly named people became common, and hereditary surnames began to be adopted. One source for these new surnames was from existing nicknames, which identified the bearer by a physical characteristic or other identifiable trait. Barbuto was a nickname surname for a bearded person, derived from the words barba and bella, which together mean beautiful beard.

Barbuto Early Origins



The surname Barbuto 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.
