The name Gregorio is a patronymic surname came from the personal name Gregorein, which means "to be awake" or "watchful." Patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, were the most common type of family name found in this region.

Gregorio Early Origins



The surname Gregorio was first found in Sardinia (Italian: Sardegna, Sardinian: Sardigna), the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The original inhabitants were Sicels. The Greeks colonized in 735 B. C. Phoenician settlements began in 6th century. Carthaginians arrived 410. Romans arrived, then the Saracens. Then the Norman Conquest said to be Sicily's brightest hour, 1057 A.D and taking 35 years. They made Sicilians the leading Maritimes power in the Mediterranean, and King Roger of Sicily one of the greatest Kings in Europe. From Sicily they invaded Greece. 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. Perhpas the earliest record of the name is of Goro di Gregorio (circa 1300-34,) Italian sculptor and goldsmith, documented in Siena, Massa Marittima and Messina.
