Origins Available: Italian
From the historical and enchanting Italian region of the islands of Sicily
emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Pino 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 Pino is a name for a person with a speckled or dark complexion. The surname Pino is largely found in the south of Italy and in some cases, it may be derived from the word pinto, which, in the Neapolitan dialect, means turkey or bird, and might have referred to one who boasted or strutted like this bird.
The surname Pino was first found in Salerno with Landulfo Pinto, a judge in the province in the 13th century.
Surnames that originated in Italy are characterized by an enormous number of spelling variations. Some of these are derived from regional traditions and dialects. Northern names, for instance, often end in "o", while southern names tend to end in "i". Other variations come from the fact the medieval scribes tended to spell according to the sound of words, rather than any particular set of rules. The recorded variations of Pino include Pinto, Pinti, Lo Pinto, La Pinta, Pintus. and others.
