Etymological origin of Italian surname: Alfino


Alfini is extremely rare, Alfino it is a little less and it seems typical of the Chieti area, of Rocca San Giovanni in particular, should derive from the Latin nomen Alfenus or Alfinus of which we have an example in an ancient Latin tombstone: "T (ito) Appalio T (iti) f (ilio) Vel (ina) - Alfino Secundo - proc (uratori) August (i) XX hered (itatium) - proc (uratori) Alpi (um) ... ".
