The surname Cavallin was first found in at Ferrara, a city and comune in Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy, capital city of the Province of Ferrara, one of the more prosperous cities at this early time. Records locate the Cavalieri family in Ferrara as early as the 9th century, when Giovanni Cavalieri defended his vast lands against the Venetians.

Italian surnames come in far more variations than the names of most other nationalities. Regional traditions and dialects are a decisive factor in this characteristi c. For example, northern names tend to end in "o", while southern in "i". Also important, but not unique to Italy, was the fact that before dictionaries and the printing press most scribes simply spelled words according to their sounds. The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Cavallin include Cavalli, Cavallo, Cavalletti, Cavalletto, Cavallini, Cavallino, Cavallina, Cavallìn, Cavallucci, Cavalluccio, Cavalluzzi, Cavallotti, Cavallotto, Cavallone, Cavallacci, Cavallazzi, Cavallari, Cavallaro, Cavallàr, Cavalleri, Cavallero, Cavaleri, Cavalero, Cavalieri, Cavaliere and many more.
