From the ancient and beautiful Italian island of Sicily emerged a variety of distinguished names, including the notable surname Carino. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adopt 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 were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Local names, also 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, and does not necessarily denote nobility. The Carino family lived in a town just outside Palermo, as in 1189, a member of the Caro family was the Archbishop of Monreale.

Carino Early Origins



The surname Carino was first found in Sicily (Italian: Sicilia), the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Naples and the southern portion of the peninsula. Research shows that records of the Carino family date back to the year 1189 when a member of the Caro family was the Archbishop of Monreale, a town just outside Palermo.
