Surnames Bianco, Bianchi, Dal Bianco, Bianchini, Bianchetti and others
The surname Bianco derives from the word “white” used as a name or nickname derived from a physical characteristic: the hair and more precisely the color of the skin, the paleness. In the time of our ancestors, a poor diet contributed to the premature aging of the hair with the early appearance of gray hair.
The nickname can also derive from a toponym, that is, from the name of a place, for example ‘casa bianca‘ = white house; ‘monte bianco’ = White mountain; ‘mulino bianco’ = white mill.
It can also have an augural, propitiatory function: “may he be pure in faith”
