Lombard History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , French , Italian


From the historical and fascinating Italian region of Venice emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Lombard family. 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. Although the most common type of family name found in the region of Venice is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, the nickname type of surname is also frequently found. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The surname Lombard came from a person from Lombardy. The Lombards, who were a Germanic tribe that overran the area in the 6th century, derived their name from the Latin Langobardi, which is composed of the Germanic elements meaning long-beards. The name is also an occupational name, derived from the personal name Lombardo, which indicates merchant, banker, money-changer. Since these professions were mainly practiced in the north of Italy and in the region of Tuscany, these are the places where the surname continues to be most prevalent today.


Early Origins of the Lombard family


The surname Lombard was first found in Tuscany, Venice and Sicily. One of the earliest bearers of this surname was Pietro Lombardo, a theologian born around the year 1100.
