Romeo Early Origins



The surname Romeo was first found in Italy, where bearers of Romeo inhabited almost every part of Italy, but the name is more common closer to Rome, though rare in Rome itself. This is related to the meaning of the name, which means "man from Rome." Obviously, this name would be redundant for someone living in Rome; rather, it was given as an identifying name for people who once lived in Rome and moved elsewhere. The variations ending in "i" are from the north, while those ending in "o" are from the south.
