hereditary surnames in Italy began in the 10th and 11th centuries, but was not widespread until the modern era. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. The surname Pollini was derived from the Latin name Apollonia, which is the Latin feminine form of the Greek masculine name "Apollonios," of the same root as the name of the sun god "Apollo." Versions of this name became extremely popular during the Middle Ages in devotion to St. Apollonia, a 3rd century saint and martyr.
