The surname De cillis 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.

De cillis Early Origins



The surname De cillis was first found in Pistoia, where the Cellesi family originates. The earliest records of bearers of this name date back to a record of the Cella family of Cremona in 1160. In 1200, a member of the Cellesi family of Pistoia was master of the bishops in the city and thus was responsible for appointing new individuals.
