Where did the Italian Minichini family come from? What is the Italian Minichini family crest and coat of arms? When did the Minichini family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Minichini family history?


Enormous variation in spelling and form characterizes those Italian names that originated in the medieval era. This is caused by two main factors: regional tradition, and inaccuracies in the recording process. Before the last few hundred years, scribes spelled names according to their sounds. Spelling variations were the unsurprising result. The variations of Minichini include Menico, Menichi, Menech, Minico, Minichi, Menego, Meneghi, Menega, Menoga, Menoghi, Minigo, Menco, Menchi, Menci, Minco, Mengo, Menghi, Menga, Mingo, Minghi, Meni, Misotti, Minuziano, Mingoti, Menochio, Minelli, Minnelli, Menis, De Minico, Menichelli, Minichelli, Minichiello, Meneghelli, Meneghello, Meneghel, Menichini, Minichini, Minichino, Meneghini, Meniconi, Meneghino, Meneghin, Menicucci, Minicucci, Meneguzzi, Menoncini and many more.

First found in at the foundations of Venice (Italian: Venezia), with the Minotto family.
