Search Etymological origin of Italian surnames


Tarabini is typical of Valtellina, of Morbegno, Talamona, Cosio Valtellino and Albaredo for San Marco, with a strain also at Colico in Lecco, should derive from the medieval name Tarabino, name of which we find trace in the first half of 1500 with Messer Tarabino da Modena Cavalatore (guard on horseback) at the Este Court of Alfonso I °, then of Ercole II ° and last at the court of Louis, but could also derive from a nickname originated from the dialect term Tara (junk) to indicate that probably the ancestor Made the sweeper or cleaner. Traces of this cognitive knowledge are found in 1540 in Grosio, when the community of Grosio on behalf of the chapter of alms rents for eight years to Battista Tarabino was Giovanni, also a inhabitant of Grosio, of the funds located inside the castle of S. Faustino and Giovita of Grosio to the annual dense of bushels 4 of wine, in a legal registration of 1612 in the District Adda Grosio (SO) The claimant is a certain saltaro (species of ancient country guard) Giovanni de Tarabino.
