The Cerruti surname is derived from the Italian word "cero" or "cirro" both of which mean "curl," and as such this was probably originally a nickname for someone with curly hair.

Cerruti Early Origins



The surname Cerruti was first found in Verona, a city in Venetia Italy, capital of the province of Verona. This ancient city was the chief town of the Cenomani, a Gaulish tribe and became a Latin town in 89 B. C. It became part of Lombardy (568,) Frankish, Bartolmeo ruled and died in 1304. It is said to be the home of Romeo and Juliet. The city is rich in churches, museums, galleries, paintings, sculptures, statues and monuments. The cathedral was consecrated in 1187. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
