Vaja Early Origins



The surname Vaja was first found in Florence (Italian: Firenze), where they trace back as an ancient noble family. 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.
