The name Occhialini is derived from the Italian word "occhi," which means "eyes." It comes from a class of surnames known as Nickname surnames that usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. It is likely that the original bearer of the Occhialini surname had distinctive eyes, or perhaps was known for having good eyesight.

Occhialini Early Origins



The surname Occhialini was first found in Verona, capital city of the Italian province of Veneto. The earliest mention of this surname was in nearby Legnago, where Codrado Occhi di Cane was Governor in 1256. The ancient city of Verona was the chief town of the Cenomani, a Gaulish tribe and became a Latin town in 89 B. C. It became part of Lombardy(568,) Frankish, Bartolmeo ruled and died in 1304. It is said to be the home of Romeo and Juliet. The city is rich in churches, museums, galleries, paintings, sculptures, statues and monuments. The cathedral was consecrated in 1187. 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.
