From the historical and fascinating Italian region of Venice emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished De pasquale family. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adapt 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 are characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Although the most common type of family name found in the region of Venice is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, the nickname type of surname is also frequently found. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The surname De pasquale came from a person who was born on Easter day. The name De pasquale is derived from the word Pasqua, which in Italian means Easter, which is the Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Christ. The word Pasqua itself is derived from the ecclesiastical Latin word Pascha, which in turn comes from the Greek Pascha and the Hebrew Pesah (through the Aramaic Pisha). Pesah was the holiday which celebrated the liberation of the people of Israel from the slavery in Egypt, and coincided with the Christian holiday.
