The distinguished surname Novello can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Venice. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves as populations grew and travel became more frequent. The process of adopting fixed hereditary surnames was not complete until the modern era, but the use of hereditary family names in Italy began in the 10th and 11th centuries. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. The surname Novello came from the personal name Novello. The Italian word "novello" is derived from the Latin "novellus," which means "new."

Novello Early Origins



The surname Novello was first found in Venice, the most famous city of the Veneto region, is noted for the beautiful Cathedral of Saint Mark, and the unique canals which wind throughout the city.

Roots of the Novello family have been located in the city of Padua, with Riccardino Novelli, a government consul in 1113.
