The Pontilli surname was taken on from any of the many place names in Italy called Ponte, or from places derived from the Italian word "ponte," which means "bridge." Local names are derived from a place-name where the original bearer once resided or held land. Often Italian local surnames bore the prefix "di," which signifies emigration from one place to another, but does not necessarily denote nobility.

Pontilli Early Origins



The surname Pontilli was first found in Emilia-Romagna. Although this name arose independently in various parts of Italy, the first recorded instances of the name found are of the Ponte di Venezi family, ennobled in 1297, who are said to be originally of Ferrara.
