The name Giovenco is thought to be derived from the Latin "iuvenis," meaning "young." It was likely first used as a nickname for the younger of two people who bore the same personal name, becoming a surname as surnames began to come into usage in this region.

Giovenco Early Origins



The surname Giovenco was first found in Naples, (Italian: Napoli, Latin: Neapolis) former capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in southern Italy; it is the chief city of the province of Naples. It shares with Instanbul 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.
