The distinguished surname Noviani 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 Noviani came from the personal name Novello. The Italian word "novello" is derived from the Latin "novellus," which means "new."

Noviani Early Origins



The surname Noviani 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. It is in this rich Italian region that origins of the Noviani surname are found. Roots of the Noviani family have been located in the city of Padua, with Riccardino Novelli, a government consul in 1113.
