The Lo grande surname comes from the word "grande" which means "tall," or "large," and evolved from a nickname for someone of large stature, in either size or reputation.

Lo grande Early Origins



The surname Lo grande was first found in Ferrara, a city and comune in Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy, capital city of the Province of Ferrara. History dates the city back to 753. It was at war with Venice in 1471. It is a walled city and notable is the Church of S.Cristoforo. Knitted goods and shawls are made. 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 was in itself a family honor. The name was of ancient nobility.
