The distinguished surname Milesi can be traced back to the historic region of Lombardy. The people of this region were originally known only by a single name, but it became necessary to adopt a second name as populations grew and travel became more frequent. The process of adopting fixed hereditary surnames in Italy began in the 10th and 11th centuries, but was not complete until the modern era. The Milesi surname derives from originally from the word "Milo," the name of a Greek island, means "one who hailed from Milo."

Milesi Early Origins



The surname Milesi was first found in Bergamo, where the Milesi di Ancona family have been on record since the 15th century. Giovanni Antonio Milesi was born in Bergamo in 1479 and died in Rome in 1565, where he was buried in the church of Saint Augustine.
