Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. Over the centuries the name Spano may have had many changes and the present form, according to our studies, appears to be different from the original. It is important to realize that the name may have gone through dialect variations, contractions, shortened forms of the original one, lenitions, errors due to incorrect transcriptions and voluntary changes. Therefore, we believe that the surname Spano came originally from Spanò, on which we are able to provide the following historical and heraldic information taken from bibliographic sources of Araldicus: This Last Name of SPANO is a French ethnic name from an aphetic form of the Old French word ESPAIGNOL, meaning a Spaniard. The name was rendered in ancient documents in the Latin form HISPANIOLUS. The Italian cognates were frequently nicknames referring to people of extreme haughtiness or elegance, which were believed to be characteristics of the Spaniards; Surnames having a derivation from nicknames form the broadest and most miscellaneous class of last names, encompassing many different types of origin. The most typical classes refer adjectivally to the general physical aspect of the person concerned, or to his character. Many nicknames refer to a man’s size or height, while others make reference to a favoured article of clothing or style of dress. Many last names extrapolated from the names of animals and birds. In the Middle Ages ideas were held about the characters of other living creatures, based on observation, and these associations were reflected and reinforced by large bodies of folk tales featuring animals behaving as humans. The painter Giuseppe Maria Crespi (1665-1737) was nicknamed ‘Lo SPAGNUOLO’ because of his foppish dress. Other spellings of the name include PAGNOUL, PAGNOUX, SPAGNOLI, SPANIO, SPAANS, SPANJER, LESPAGNOL, LESGAGNOUD, LEPAGNOL and LEPAGNEUX. 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. In the Middle Ages the Herald (old French herault) was an officer whose duty it was to proclaim war or peace, carry challenges to battle and messages between sovereigns; nowadays war or peace is still proclaimed by the heralds, but their chief duty as court functionaries is to superintend state ceremonies, such as coronations, installations, and to grant arms. Edward III (1327-1377) appointed two heraldic kings-at-arms for south and north, England in 1340. The English College of Heralds was incorporated by Richard III in 1483-84….
