The surname Bava was first found in the region of Calabria, and also in the town of Vibonati, located in the region of Basilicata. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time was in itself a family honor.
