Negrette History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Italian people 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 surname Negrette is derived from the Italian word "negri" which means "black." It was most likely originally a nickname for someone with a dark complexion, perhaps for an immigrant from northern Africa.
