The distinguished surname De andrea can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Venice. The people here were known by only a single name until it became necessary for them 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. De andrea is a patronymic surname, a name derived from the father's given name. The surname De andrea came from the Greek given name Andreas, which is a name that means manly. The given name Andreas is itself derived from the Greek words aner, andrós, which mean man, and by extension warrior.

De andrea Early Origins



The surname De andrea was first found in Friuli (Venetian: Friul), an area of northeastern Italy in 1150 with the Andriotti family. This family was known for ownership of several castles in the region, and in 1210 they were made nobility.
