Etymological origin of Italian surname: Munari


Both Munaretti and Muneratti, which Munaretto and Muneratto are typical of the Veneto region, although the first and third are much rarer than the second and fourth, Munari is widespread throughout the north with a stock also in Lazio in Rome, Latina and Aprilia, Munarin is typical of the area of Casale sul Sile and Mogliano Veneto in the Treviso area and of Martellago (VE), Munarini has a stock in Reggio Emilia and one in Vicenza in Vicenza and Thiene, Muner, quite rare, has a stock in Venice and in Venice. , in Montebelluna in the Treviso area and in Tolmezzo in the Udine area, Munero is practically unique and is probably due to a transcription error of the previous one, Munerotto is typical of the Venetian, of Cavallino Treporti and Iesolo, and of the Trevisano, of Susegana and Santa Lucia di Piave, all these surnames should derive, directly or through various hypocoristic forms or dialectal modifications, or from the Lombard name Munari of which we have an example in a Charta venditionis of the Longobard Diplomatic Code of 19 January 735 preserved in the Piacenza archives: "... Munari filius quondam Gemmolo uindedit in ipso loco media iuge, et accepit precio ab Romoald presbyero medium-sized auri conparer ...", or, and most probably, from dialectal nicknames originated from the term munaro or munero, for those who carried out the trade of miller.
