lazzaretti History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The surname lazzaretti 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.
