Origins Available: Italian, Spanish


Noble surnames, such as Valenti, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Valenti, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Valenti family originally lived in the place named Valenzuela. This place named is derived from the place-name Valencia, and it means little Valencia. The city of Valencia is situated on the Guadalaviar (now Turia) river. The city was first named Valencia de Campos by the king of Leon in 1150.
