Where did the Italian Savino family come from? What is the Italian Savino family crest and coat of arms? When did the Savino family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Savino family history?

The Savino surname comes from the Latin personal name Sabinus. Much of the early popularity of this personal name comes from suffered Saint Sabina, martyred in Rome in around 126 AD, there is a 4th century basilica in Rome named for her.


In comparison with other European surnames, Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms. They reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each with its own distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the typical Italian surname suffix is "i", whereas in Southern Italy it is "o". Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes and church officials often spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. The spelling variations in the name Savino include Savini, Savinio, Savina, Sabini, Sabino and others.

First found in Paganico Sabino, a comune in the Province of Rieti, Latium, about 50 km northeast of Rome and about 25 km southeast of Rieti or Monteleone Sabino, a comune located about 45 km northeast of Rome and about 20 km south of Rieti or at Varco Sabino, comune in the same area. These places are all small municipalities but they are in the heart of the Sabino dialect, a Romance language which is found through the northern part of province of Aquila and the whole province of Rieti.
