Venice, one of the oldest and most beautiful regions of Italy, is the esteemed birthplace of numerous prominent families, and of a family that bears the surname Panella. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for them 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. Panella was a surname derived from an occupation. Occupational surnames, which are less common than other types of surnames in Italy, date back to the feudal era. The surname Panella is an occupational name for a a baker, or someone who sold bread having been derived from the Italian word "pane," which means "bread" and from the Latin "panis," with the root of the meaning being derived from the verb "to feed or nourish."

Panella Early Origins



The surname Panella was first found in Bolgna (Latin: Bononia), the largest city and the capital of Emilia-Romagna Region. Earliest records are found with the famous and powerful Panico family, with Count Alberto in 1068.
