The Italian Brunini surname has a few possible sources. It is a patronymic name created from the originally Germanic personal name Bruno. It evolved as a nickname from the Italian word "bruno," meaning "brown," referring to the hair color or perhaps complexion. It may also have evolved as a habitational name from a place name, such as Bruno, in Asti province.

Brunini Early Origins



The surname Brunini was first found in Florence (Italian: Firenze), originally the capital of Tuscany, then capital of the kingdom of Italy. The Bruno or Bruni family were originally from Arezzo but this part of their early history is not traceable. The Brunelli family are on record in Venice from 1151. During the 11th and 12th centuries the family branched from Florence south to Norman dominated Sicily where Giovanni di Bruno held a castle in Palermo in 1282.
