Adriano Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of early medieval English origin, with several variant spellings including Adrien, Adrian, Adrienne, Adriaan, Adriano, Adrianello etc. The surname dervies from the Latin male given name "(H)adrianus", originally an ethnic name for someone from the seaport of Adria - which gave its name to the Adriatic Sea - who settled in Rome and became known as "the man from Adria" (in Latin, "Adrianus"). The ultimate origin of "Adria" is the Latin "ater", coal-black, referring to the black sands of the seaport.
