The surname Celoni and its many variations have several possible origins. Some are rooted in the Old Italian words "cellaio" or "cellario," which mean "butler;" in which case the name would have been derived from the occupation of the first bearers of the name. Some versions of this name are rooted in the word "cielo," meaning "sky." Alternatively, it is also quite probably that some instances of this surname were derived from place-names such as Cella in Lombardy, Celle, Tuscany, or Cellino, Venice.
