The surname Murano was first found in Modena (Etruscan: Mutna; Latin: Mutina; Modenese: Mňdna), a prosperous city at this early time. Records show that Bernardino Morano was a lawyer for the Commune of Modena in 1170.

Italian surnames come in far more variations than the names of most other nationalities. Regional traditions and dialects are a decisive factor in this characteristic. For example, northern names tend to end in "o", while southern in "i". Also important, but not unique to Italy, was the fact that before dictionaries and the printing press most scribes simply spelled words according to their sounds. The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Murano include Morana, Morano, Morani, Morandi, Morando, Moranda, Morandini, Morandin and many more.
