Tamanini is typically Trentino, of Trento and Vigolo Vattaro in particular, Temani, almost unique, is also of Trentino, should derive, directly or through a hypochoristic, from an apheretic form of Altamanus or Altemannus, an italianization of the name Germanic Aldman., in turn composed by the terms ald (elder, Wise) and Mann (man), of the use of this name we have an example in an act of 1204 in Chiavenna in the Sondriese, where we read: "... Giving et recourse Domino Conrado Annuatim censum in Timiliasca on site Caza, Omni Year in Sancto Martino, Solidos triginta denariorum novorum mediolanensium et pound viginti de pipero well weighted, de hinc ad triginta annos continuos; Testes Dominus Rangerius de Segagnio, Altemannus filius domains Ainrici de Razumo, Aliique. ..".
