It is generally thought that the Sorgi surname is habitational, deriving from an Italian place name. Perhaps, for example from the town of Seregno, in the province of Milan, Lombardy, Italy

Sorgi Early Origins



The surname Sorgi was first found in Lombardy (Italian: Lombardia), a territorial, industrialized division of Italy south of the Alps.Milan is the chief city, followed by Mortera, Pavia and Mantua. Silk is the principal trade. This well traveled surname is claimed to be originally of Bergamo. 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.
