Early Origins of the Testani family


The surname Testani was first found in Italy. Bearers of Testani have been found in almost every part of Italy, but in Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany in particular. The spelling variations of the name which end in "i" are mostly from the north, while those that end in "o" are mostly from the south. The name comes from the Old French word "teste," meaning "head." The name probably began as a nickname for someone with an unusually large or oddly-shaped head. There are many compound names similar to this name, such as "Testagrossa," meaning "big head."
