Tralasciando, perchè senza alcun fondamento di serietà, quanto alcuni autori hanno scritto sulle origini della famiglia Luongo, alla quale hanno dato per capostipite un console romano Tito Sempronio Longo, può affermarsi che la famiglia fu nota nel Napoletano sin dall’epoca Normanna e occupò cariche importanti e possedette terre e titoli; venne ricevuta all’Ordine di Malta a 12 dicembre 1578 in persona di Vespasiano; il 14 agosto 1612 in persona di Giovan Giacomo, a 29 dicembre 1664 in persona di Antonio. Nel corso dei secoli vari membri di questa casata si propagarono in diverse regioni d’Italia, principalmente Lazio, Romagna e Lombardia. I cognomi antichi in qualunque modo conservati rendono decoro non solo alle famiglie ma anche alle Città, che però credo, che questa fosse una di quelle cause, per le quali i romani vollero, che i suo cittadini avessero per figliuoli, se non veri, adottivi. Pare molto riguardevoli i soggetti viventi di questa famiglia che con tanto decoro sostentano questo così antico e nobile cognome che ha avuto uomini di Consiglio, e altri soggetti illustri.. Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Italian Last Name of LUONGO was a nickname for a tall person, rendered in medieval documents in the Latin form LONGUS. The name has travelled widely in many forms throughout Europe and into the United States, and variants of the name include LONGHI, LANG, LANGMAN, LANGER, DE LANGUE, LUONGO, LUNGO, LUNGU and LONGATO, to name but a few. 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. Early records of the name in England include Adam LANGE, who was on an inquest of lands in Aberdeen in the year 1341, and Willelmus LANGE witnessed a charter between the bishop of Aberdeen in 1391. Robert LANGE was chaplain to Duncan, earl of Lennox between 1394 and 1398, and Thomas LANGE was a charter witness in Elenhall in 1580. A noble member of the name was Falco Pietro LONGHI (1702-85) the Venetian painter. He was a pupil of Balestra, and excelled in small-scale satiric pictures of Venetian life. Most of his work is in Venetian public collections, but the National Gallery, London, has three, of which the best known is ‘Rhinoceros in an Arena’. His son Alessandro (1733-1813) was also a painter. Some of his portraits are now attributed to his father. Another eminent member of the name was Andrew LANG (1844-1912) the Scottish man of letters. He was a fellow of Merton College, Oxford. He moved to London in 1875 to take up journalism and became one of the most versatile and famous writers of his day. 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…. Noble title: Nobili
