The process of adopting fixed 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 Pollino 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.

Pollino Early Origins



The surname Pollino was first found in Florence (Italian: Firenze), where they held land and estates from early on. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
