The surname Franchino comes from the same roots as the word "Franc," which was a name for a Germanic people known as the Franks, who inhabited the lands around the Rhine River in Roman times. In the 6th century, under the leadership of Clovis I, the Frankish tribe established a substantial empire in Europe, which later developed into the Holy Roman Empire. The popularity of this name as a Medieval personal name was in part due to St. Francis of Assissi (1181-1226), the Italian religious founder of the Franciscan Order.

Franchino Early Origins



The surname Franchino was first found in Padua (Italian: Padova, Latin: Patavium, Venetian: Padoa), although there have been noble families of this name in Bologna, Cesena, Ravenna, and Verona since the Middle Ages.
