Etymological origin of Italian surname: Viano


Typical of Turin and Cuneese, it should derive from toponyms such as Viano (AT), the ancient name of Vigliano d ' Asti, but it is also possible that in some cases derives from the apheresis of names like Flaviano or Octavian, a trace of this cognominization we find in the early 1500 In the lower Veneto: "... ET Bartolomeus Vianus iam in exercitu Venetorum imperator generalis electus Veronam versus Castra ducere Nunciatur... ".
