Ferretti Early Origins



The surname Ferretti was first found in Portugal, where the surname Ferretti was most likely used initially as an occupational name for a blacksmith. Such a heritage is demonstrated by the coat of arms of one branch of this family that features fourteen iron cauldrons and the crest of another branch that features an ostrich with a horseshoe in its beak.
