Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This German and French Last Name was primarily from a Spanish personal name composed of the elements FARO (journey, expedition) and NANO (daring and brave). The Last Name is of comparatively recent origin in German-speaking states, and in France, for the given name was not introduced from Spain until the late 15th century.
