The name Di stefano is of patronymic origin, meaning that the first person to bear the surname took it from his father's personal name. A popular medieval personal name, Stefano, is the basis of this name and its variants. Stefano itself is derived from the Greek "stephanos" which means "laurel crown." The English equivalent of the name, Stephen was a very popular Christian name in medieval Europe because of two renowned saints of the that name.
