The surname Sellari was first found in the city of Salerno, which was part of the Papal States at one time, part of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies at another and later on an independent city-state. The variations of Sellari ending in "i" are from the northern part of Italy, but the family remained in the south for the most part. The family took their name from the city of Salerno where they originated, most likely taking on the name after they moved out of the city, to identify themselves as having come from there.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Salerni, Salierno, Salerno, Salernitano and others.
