Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This English, French and Italian name was extrapolated from the medieval given font name Damian, probably extrapolated from the Greek goddess Damia. It was a name borne by an early Christian saint, who was martyred in Cilicia AD 303, under the emperor Domitian, together with his brother Cosmas. In some account the brothers were said to be doctors, and together they were recorded as the patrons of physicians and apothecaries. A later St. Damian lived in the 7th-8th centuries, and was bishop of Pavia; he may have had some influence on the popularity of the given name in Italy. 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. Following the crusades in Europe in the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries, a need was felt for a family name to replace the one given at birth, or in addition to it. This was recognized by those of noble birth, and particularly by those who went on the Crusades, as it added prestige and practical advantage to their status. Early records of the name mention Damianus (without Last Name) who was recorded in 1199 in County Norfolk, and William Daman appears in 1294, County Essex. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face, and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped and flowing garment worn over the armour. Pietro DAMIANI or St. Peter DAMIAN (1007-72) was the Italian ecclesiastic, born in Ravenna, and one of the Doctors of the Church. He herded swine in boyhood, but joined the hermitage at Fonte Avellana in 1035 and rose to be cardinal and bishop of Ostia (1057). He laboured strenuously to reform the clergy, then at a low ebb of immorality and indolence. His feast day is 23rd February. The associated coat of arms is recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. (Daman)…. Noble title: Nobili – Patrizi – Signori
