The Noferini surname comes from the Italian personal name Onofrio, which is derived from the Latin Onnuphrius. It became a popular Christian name, mainly in Southern Italy due to St. Onofrio, a 5th-century Egyptian martyr.

Noferini Early Origins



The surname Noferini was first found in Emilia. 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, was in itself a family honor.
