Origins Available: Czech, French, Italian


The surname Brosius came from the name Ambrose, which was in turn derived from the Latin Ambrosius, which means immortal. The name Ambrose was extremely popular and spread rapidly because of devotion to Saint Ambrose, who lived during the 4th century and was one of the four Fathers of the Western Christian church. He was Governor of Liguria in northern Italy and became the Bishop of Milan in 374 even though he was not yet baptized. As bishop, St. Ambrose was a brilliant administrator and a courageous opponent of Arianism, which the Emperor Theodosius supported.

Brosius Early Origins



The surname Brosius was first found in Bolgna (Latin: Bononia), the largest city and the capital of Emilia-Romagna Region. The famous University of Bologna was founded in the 11th century, by the 13th century the student body was nearly 10,000. Dante and Petrarch studied there. Tisso was tried there for 1564 for writing satirical poems. Bologna naturally, is famous for its sausages. But many noted scholars were born there. 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.
