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 patronymic surnames, derived from the father's given name. Pedrotti is of patronymic origin, derived from the personal name Pedro, from the Latin "Petrus," the Greek "Petros," and ultimately from the Aramaic "Kephas," from "kefa," meaning "stone" or "rock." As a personal name, versions of this name were extremely poplular due to devotion to Saint Peter, one of the Apostles.
