Stefanelli Early Origins



The surname Stefanelli was first found in Sicily (Italian: Sicilia), the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Bearers of the name have been found throughout southern Italy, especially in the island region of Sicily. The name Stefanelli is of patronymic origin, meaning that the first person to bear the surname took it from his father's personal name. A popular medieval personal name, Stefano, is the basis of this name and its variants. Stefano itself is derived from the Greek "stephanos" meaning "laurel crown." The English equivalent of the name, Stephen was a very popular Christian name in medieval Europe because of two renowned saints of the that name.
