From the historical and fascinating Italian region of Venice emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Mannino 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 Mannino came from a fierce or strong man. In some cases, the name Manni may have arisen as an occupational name.

Mannino Early Origins



The surname Mannino was first found in the city of Cremona. The Manna family records date back to 1037.
