The surname Santorelli was originally a nickname bestowed upon someone who was born on All Saint's Day, the 1st of November, and is derived from the Latin "sanctorum."

Santorelli Early Origins



The surname Santorelli was first found in Lucania, formerly Basilicata, is a territorial division of southern Italy which extended from Tyrrhenian sea, to the Gulf of Tarentum. It was named for Lucani who conquered it in the 5th century B.C. This large territory contained many towns and villages. 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 family held a family seat in Matero in Basilicata, otherwise known as Lucania. They were a distinguished noble family whose first records begin in 1198 when Eustachio Santoro was Baron of Cancellara.
