The distinguished surname Mattice can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Piedmont.

The surname Mattice came from the personal name Matteo, which is the Italian form of the English Matthew. Ultimately, the name was inIn Hebrew, and meant "gift of God." This name was adopted into Latin as both Matthias and Matthaeus. During the medieval era, the personal name Matteo became popular as people often named their children after popular saints in the hopes that the child would enjoy that saint's patronage in later life.
