From the historical and enchanting Italian region of Tuscany emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Mancias family. During the Middle Ages, as populations grew and travel between regions became more frequent, the people of Tuscany found it necessary to adopt a second name to identify themselves and their families. 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 were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Although the most common type of family name found in Tuscany 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 Mancias is a name for a person who was equally adept and skilled in the use of both hands. The name Mancini is derived from the Italian word mancino, which means one who is ambidextrous.

Early Origins of the Mancias family


The surname Mancias was first found in Florence (Italian: Firenze), where the main branch of the family originates. Leonardo Mancini, was a bishop in Orvieto in 1295. Also noteworthy is Daccino Mancini, who was the ambassador to the Sicilian King in 1406 and then to the Pope in 1408. Around the same period, Giuseppe Mancini was the Archbishop of Siena, and about 400 years later, another Archbishop, this time of Cosenza, was Domenico Mancinelli. The Mancinelli family is known for being one of the oldest families in the city of Narni in the region of Umbria.

Mancias 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 Mancias. These spelling variations include Mancin, Mancina, Mancinelli, Mancinetti, Mancino and many more.
