Costantin is typical of the provinces of Padua, Venice, Treviso, Belluno and Pordenone, particularly present in Forno di Zoldo (BL), Venice, Montagnana (PD), Montebelluna (TV) and Maniago (PN), the other two surnames are common in all over Italy, but Costantini particularly in the central area while Constantine is in the south, these surnames should all derive from the Latin cognomen Costantinus. In 1200, we find a Costantini family numbered among the patricians of Venice.
