Origins Available: English, Italian


The Pavia surname is derived from the given name Pavia, of uncertain origin.

Pavia Early Origins



The surname Pavia was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 12th century when they held estates in that shire.
