Famiglia antica annoverata fra le 13 patrizie della Congregazione di S. Francesco, dalla quale uscì un Vescovo di Concordia nel 1494; e un Francesco Cardinale nel 1511. Un Giusto ed un Bartolomeo furono creati da Carlo V Conti Palatini, l’uno nel 1548 e l’altro nel 1554. A questa famiglia ha appartenuto il titolo di Conte, titolo che solevasi dagli imperatori a coloro che erano al loro fianco. Da questi Conti si sceglieva coloro che venivano destinati a soprintendere agli uffizi del regio palazzo, ed altri erano mandati al governo delle provincie dell’impero ed a gurdare i confini. Erano poi altri conti, estranei ai cennati uffizi, come quelli addetti all’annona, al commercio; ed anche i provveditori dell’esercito si ebbero quel titolo. Ai tempi dei Goti la dignità di Conte fu pur mantenuta a parecchi pubblici funzionari; ed i Longobardi ancora dissero i loro governatori conti o castaldi..

Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This French and Italian Last Name of ARGENTO was primarily rendered in the Latin form ARGENTUM. This was probably most commonly a nickname for someone with silvery grey hair, but it may also have been primarily an occupational name for a worker in the metal. It could also have meant one who lived near a silver mine. There are several French towns and villages named with this word, because silver was mined there. The origins of Italian last names are not clear, and much work remains to be done on medieval Italian records. It seems that stable bynames, in some cases hereditary, were in use in the Venetian Republic by the end of the 10th century. The typical Italian Last Name endings are ‘i’ and ‘o’, the former being characteristic of northern Italy. The singular form ‘o’ is more typical of southern Italy. The name is also spelt ARGENTI and this is the name of a family of Italian origin, with branches in Greece, France and England, as well as Genoa, and elsewhere in Italy. Members of the family were leaders of the Greeks in their War of Independence against the Turks, and later in the 19th century, a branch settled in England. Early records in England mention Richard de Argentein, County Hereford, 1273. Giles de Argentein, 1281, County Norfolk. John Argentein, registered at Oxford University on the 20th October, 1449. Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their Last Name as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God, however much the individual may have liked or disliked the Last Name, they were stuck with it, and people infrequently modified them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error. Among the humbler classes of European society, and euniquely among illiterate people, individuals were willing to accept the mistakes of officials, clerks and priests as officially bestowing a new version of their Last Name, just as they had meekly accepted the Last Name they had been born with. In North America, the linguistic problems confronting immigration officials at Ellis Island in the 19th century were legendary as a prolific source of Anglicization.
