The Barta family can trace its noble origins to the Italian region of Piedmont. 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. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they are characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Although the most traditional type of family name found in the region of Piedmont is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, local surnames are also found. Local names, which are the least frequent of the major types of surnames found in Italy, are derived from a place-name where the original bearer once resided or held land. Often Italian local surnames bore the prefix "di," which signifies emigration from one place to another, but does not necessarily denote nobility. The Barta family lived in the city of Susa, west of Turin. The records date back to the 12th century, when the Bartolomei family were governors of San Giorgio.

The surname Barta was first found in the northern region of Piedmont, with earliest records showing the family in the city of Susa, which is located west of Turin. The records date back to the 12th century, when the Bartolomei family were governors of San Giorgio.

Italian surnames come in far more variations than the names of most other nationalities. Regional traditions and dialects are a decisive factor in this characteristi c. For example, northern names tend to end in "o", while southern in "i". Also important, but not unique to Italy, was the fact that before dictionaries and the printing press most scribes simply spelled words according to their sounds. The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Barta include Bartolomei, Bartolomeo, Bartolommeo, Bortolomei, Bartoccelli, Bartholazzi, Bortolomeo, Di Bartolomeo, Bartolomucci, Bartolomeoni, Bartolomeazzi, Bortolomeotti, Bortolomedi, Bartali, Bartalo, Bartoli, Bartolo, Vartolo, Bartole, De Bartolo, De Bartoli, De Bartalo, Bartolic, Bartolich, Bartarelli, Bartaletti, Bartoletti, Bartalini, Bartolini, Bartalucci, Bartolucci, Bartalotta, Bartolotti, Bartolozzi, Bartaloni, Bartoloni, Bartolone, Bartolacci, Bartolaccini, Bartalena, Bartolena, Bartalesi, Bartocci, Bartozzi, Bortuzzi, Bortuzzo, Bortoli, Bortolo, Bortol, Bortul, Bortoletti, Bortoletto, Bortolini, Bortolino, Bortolin, Bortulin, Bortolucci, Bortoluzzi, Bortoluz, Bortolussi, Bortolotti, Bortolot, Bortolozzi, Bortolossi, Bortoloni, Bortolon, Bortolazzi, Bortolani, Bortolan, Bortolato, Bortolutti, Bort, Bortot and many more.
