Origin of Surname

This surname is found in over 70 known spellings including Roman, Romain, Roma, Romao, Romeo, Romero, Romeril, Romanet, Romilly, Romanski and Romero, to give just a few of the forms. It is recorded in almost every European country.

In general there are two origins, the first being that the name identifies a former citizen of Rome, but as the only place that most people had ever heard of outside their own country was Rome, this surname also became a description for all Italians!

Secondly the religious revival of the Middle Ages and the Crusades to free the Holy Land created a major boost for any name associated with centres of Christianity. Rome being the centre of Christianity, the name was even given to people who had been to Rome on a pilgrimage.
