Faith Early Origins



The surname Faith was first found in Austria, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. The name was taken from St. Veit (in Latin, Vitus) who was the patron saint protecting against fire and lightning.
