Nazario History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Nazario family

The surname Nazario was first found in Italy. Nazario has been found in almost every part of Italy, but in the north in particular. The spelling variations of the name which end in "i" are mostly from the north, while those that end in "o" are mostly from the south. The occurrences of the name in the south are mostly concentrated in Naples. The name comes from the town of Nazareth, where Jesus spent his youth. The name might have been given to someone who came from that town, but more likely it was an ornamental religious name, not directly related to the man who first bore it but rather a Biblical reference.
