Casata di antica e nobile tradizione così come riporta il Dizionario Storico Blasonico delle famiglie nobili italiane di G.B. Crollanza che conferma le notizie sulla famiglia Sorbo. Originaria della regione di Liguria, ebbe dimora certa in Genova, ove, verosimilimente fu ascritta a quella nobiltà. Si ha memoria della casata sin dai secoli trascorsi e risultano testimonianze in archivi e anagrafi circa la presenza dei componenti della casata o di alcuni personaggi ad essa legati nel territroio ove ebbe dimora. Inoltre, dalla lettura del blasone che risulta essere D’azzurro, al S. al naturale sradicato è possibile avere certezza della importanza raggiunta da questa famiglia i cui avi illustri seppero, secoli orsono, innalzare per diritto al rango di Nobili. In un’arma gentilizia i colori, al pari dei simboli rappresentati, hanno un significato ragguardevole. In questo caso, la prevalenza dell’azzurro rappresenta la devozione, la fedeltà, la castità, la giustizia, la bellezza, la nobiltà, la fortezza, la vittoria, la ricchezza, buon augurio, fama gloriosa, amore alla patria. La corona è formata da un cerchio d’oro, puro, velato, rabescato, brunito ai margini, sostenente otto grosse perle in giro, di cui cinque visibili, posate sul cerchio.. Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Last Name of SORBO is a French and Italian topographic name for someone who lived near a sorb or service tree. The name was extrapolated from the Old French word SORBIER, and rendered in ancient documents in the Latin form SORBARIUM. Other spellings of the name include SORBA, SORBET and SORBON. Habitation names were primarily acquired by the original bearer of the name, who, having lived by, at or near a place, would then take that name as a form of identification for himself and his family. When people lived close to the soil as they did in the Middle Ages, they were acutely conscious of every local variation in landscape and stateside. Every field or plot of land was identified in normal conversation by a descriptive term. If a man lived on or near a hill or mountain, or by a river or stream, forests and trees, he might receive the word as a family name. Almost every town, city or village in early times, has served to name many families. A noble member of the name was Robert de SORBON (1201-74) who founded the SORBONNE in Paris in 1253, as a theological seminary. He was born in the village of SORBON near Rethel, from which he took his Last Name, and he became confessor to Louis IX. French, or rather Norman French, was the language of the aristocracy and the upper classes in England at the time stable last names were being developed, it is therefore not surprising that many of our well-known family names are extrapolated from French words. Originally only Christian or personal names were used, and although a few came into being during the 10th century, last names were not widely used until much later, when people started to realize the prestige of having a second name. Despite evidence that hereditary last names were in use in the Venetian Republic as early as the 10th Century, the origin of many Italian last names is unclear. There is still a great potential for research into medieval Italian records while documented evidence indicates the adoption of the father’s name as a Last Name is the most common form. The familiar endings of “i” and “o”, meaning to be a member of a certain family, bears this out…. Noble title: Nobili Coat of arms: D’azzurro, al sorbo al naturale sradicat…
