From the historical and fascinating Italian region of Venice emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Lombardèlli 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 Lombardèlli came from a person from Lombardy. The Lombards, who were a Germanic tribe that overran the area in the 6th century, derived their name from the Latin Langobardi, which is composed of the Germanic elements meaning long-beards. The name is also an occupational name, derived from the personal name Lombardo, which indicates merchant, banker, money-changer. Since these professions were mainly practiced in the north of Italy and in the region of Tuscany, these are the places where the surname continues to be most prevalent today.

Lombardèlli Early Origins



The surname Lombardèlli was first found in Tuscany, Venice and Sicily. One of the earliest bearers of this surname was Pietro Lombardo, a theologian born around the year 1100.

Lombardèlli Spelling Variations



Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms in comparison with other European surnames because they reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each of which has its distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the most standard Italian surname suffix is "I", whereas in Southern Italy the most typical surname suffix is "O". Sardinian is very different from other forms of Italian and in fact, it is considered to be its own distinct language. Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes, church officials, and the bearers of names, spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. As a consequence of the major changes in the Italian language and in the local spellings of Italian surnames that occurred over the course of history, there are numerous variations for the surname Lombardèlli. These spelling variations include Lombard, Lombardèlli, Lombardelli, Lombardini, Lombardi, Lombardo, Lombardia, Lombardio, Lombardetto and many more.
