The name Simoni originated from the personal name Simon, itself a derivative of the Hebrew
name "Sim'on," from the verb "sama" meaning "to listen." Thus, the name Simoni means "God has listened," referring to the gratitude of the parents who, having wished for a child, had their prayers answered.
The surname Simoni was first found in Trapani, anciently Drepanum, Sicily
. Bearers of Simoni or one of its spelling variations
have been found throughout southern Italy, but particularly on the island of Sicily
, and in the region of Campania.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Simone, Simonelli, Simonetti, Simoni, Simioni, Desimone and many more.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Unguibus armatus in hostemMotto Translation:
Armed Against The Enemy.
