The name Gagliani, like many surnames is derived from a personal name that was in use before surnames began to be used. The original personal name, Gagliardo, was composed of the Germanic elements "gail," meaning "joyous" and "hard" meaning "brave."

Gagliani Early Origins



The surname Gagliani was first found in Naples, (Italian: Napoli, Latin: Neapolis.) Former capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in southern Italy, it is now the chief city of the province of Naples. It shares with Istanbul the claim to be the most beautiful city in Europe. Naples has 237 Churches and 57 Chapels. The National Museum and other galleries contain riches in art and artifacts. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
