The Nini surname is a patronymic or plural form of Nino.

Nini Early Origins



The surname Nini was first found in Siena a city in Tuscany, capital of the province of Siena. Notable is the university but the cathedral and other fine buildings present a beauty, rich in Italian art which is unequalled. Many of the buildings are from the 12th, 13th and 14th century but the history precedes to the time of Augustus. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
