Etymological origin of Italian surname: Ajelli


Aielli, probably originally from the Pescara area, has a stock also in the Roman and Latin dialects, Aiello is typical of the south, very common especially in Campania, Calabria and Sicily, Ajello, much rarer, has a Roman stock, one in the Neapolitan and one in the Messina, D'Ajello, very rare, is Neapolitan, while D'Aiello is, in addition to the Neapolitan, also and above all from Caserta, with a stock also in the Palermo area, Daielli almost unique, Ajelli and Dajelli, very very rare, should be fairly recent and are probably the result of incorrect transcriptions in the northern registry, all derive from the medieval Latin word agellum (small farm, small field) also through toponyms such as Aielli nell'aquilano, Aiello Calabro in the Cosenza area, Aiello del Friuli in the Udine area, Aiello del Saturday in the Avellino area and many others. We have traces of these surnames since the twelfth century, Matteo d'Ajello was in the second half of the 1100s notable for the service of the Norman monarchs, a prominent figure in the second half of the 1500s was the painter Antonio Ajello from Rivello in the Potenza area. further information provided by Baron Ugo Antonio Bella derives from the toponym Aiello (in various parts of the southern section) from the Latin augellus "small farm". This island owes its existence to the toponym Aiello. This family is of the same jamb as the Neapolitan ascribed to the seat of Capuana. A Francis was consul general of Spain in Messina for the whole Kingdom of the Sicilies in the year 1711 and was the father of a Letterio that we find ascribed to the Mastra Nobile of said city of 1807. Blazon: of gold, to the blue bar, loaded from three stars of the camp, accompanied by two lions facing the second.
