The distinguished surname Mattice can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Piedmont
. The most common type of family name found in the region of Piedmont
is the patronymic
surname, derived from the father's given name. 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.
The surname Mattice was first found in Abruzzi, a region in central Italy. 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, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
