    My own surname is Scottish in origin and from what I know of it the earliest written records of this surname come from the early 1200's however the actual family is thought to be older than that. Spelling of the surname has changed a bit over the centuries but is still similar to what it originally was.

    Mine is French in origin, and was not anglicized when the family immigrated to the US. The base part of the family name is unchanged since at least the 1400's in Auvergne, France, which is as far back as I've been able to trace my direct line. Supposedly it is occupation in origin from Old French, having to do with either making pottery or living near where that was done.

    Can someone here recommend some website or online-book about etymology of italian surnames?
    Language of the source doesn't matter.
