Multiple Origins for the Surname Pellegrin


Italian


From the historical and enchanting Italian region of the islands of Sicily emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Pellegrin family. 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. Although the most common type of family name found in Sicily is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, the nickname type of surname is also frequently found. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The surname Pellegrin is a name for a pilgrim having derived from the Latin name peregrinus, which means stranger or foreigner.

Pellegrin Early Origins
