The surname Rugerio comes from the Italian personal name Ruggiero of Germanic origin, derived from the Old German words "hrod," or "renown," and "ger," meaning "spear."

Rugerio Early Origins



The surname Rugerio was first found in Rome (Italian: Roma), the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. Little can be said in the space available which would do justice to the history of this beautiful city. From 1000 B.C, its history is a book of life itself. The buildings, culture, arts, cathedrals, churches, museums galleries hold untold treasures unequalled anywhere else in the world. 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. The surname Rugerio and the English surname Rogers are of the same origin, both being derived from the Old German first name Rodger. The name Rodger is, itself, from the Old Norse "Hordgeirr," meaning "glory," or "spear." Rugerio means, simply, "son of Roger."
