The Bulla surname derives from the Latin word "bulla," which means "bubble." The origins of the surname seem to lie with the Papal bull, originally a lead (bubble like) seal of authenticity used on patents and charters issued by the Pope. Later the term came to mean the whole document itself. From this, it is supposed that Bulla may have been an occupational name originally used by someone whose work involved preparing papal bulls. There is record of the Latin word "bullator," first documented in 1250, denoting the official who sealed papal bulls.

Bulla Early Origins



The surname Bulla was first found in the North, where the Earliest records are of Bullo di Chioggia, Venetia in 1049. The family is said to have moved here from Padoua.
