The distinguished surname Giuliano originated in an area of Italy, known as the Papal States. 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. The most traditional type of family name found in the region of the Papal States is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name. During the Middle Ages, Italians adopted the patronymic system of name-making because it perfectly complemented the prevailing Feudal System. In Italy the popularity of patronymic type of surname is also due to the fact that during the Christian era, people often named their children after saints and biblical figures. The surname Giuliano came from the personal name Giuliani, or Julian. The name Giuliani was originally derived from the Latin baptismal name Iulius, which means youthful.

Giuliano Early Origins



The surname Giuliano was first found in the city of Viterbo, with Pedro Giuliano during the mid 13th century. Giuliano was made Pope in September 1276 with the new name John XXI. He wrote medical treatises and a textbook on logic, and died at an early age when the roof of his Palace at Viterbo collapsed.
