lazarus History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The surname lazarus came from the forename Lazzaro. The name Lazzaro itself is derived from the Greek word La'zar, which means La, or God, and azara, meaning help. Thus the surname means may God help him, or God has helped, by granting a child.


Early Origins of the lazarus family


The surname lazarus was first found in Modena (Etruscan: Mutna; Latin: Mutina; Modenese: Mòdna), one of the more prosperous cities at this early time. The most ancient records of this lineage are found in 902 with Feramondo Lazzara, of the castle of Lazzara near Modena.

lazarus Spelling Variations


Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms in comparison with other European surnames because they reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each of which has its distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the most standard Italian surname suffix is "I", whereas in Southern Italy the most typical surname suffix is "O". Sardinian is very different from other forms of Italian and in fact, it is considered to be its own distinct language. Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes, church officials, and the bearers of names, spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. As a consequence of the major changes in the Italian language and in the local spellings of Italian surnames that occurred over the course of history, there are numerous variations for the surname lazarus. These spelling variations include Lazzari, Lazzaro, Lazzara, Dei Lazara, Lazario, Lazaretti, Lazzeri, Lazzero, De Lazzari, Lazzarelli, Lazzaretti, Lazzeretti, Lazzarini, Lazzarino, Lazzarin, Lazzerini, Lazzarotti, Lazzarotto, Lazzaroni, Lazzarone, Lazzaron, Lazzeroni, Lazzarato, Lazzarutti and many more.
