Romero Family HistoryThis remarkable surname may well be the first example of a national surname. Recorded in many spellings including Roman, Romain, Roma, Romao, Romeo, and Romero to give some popular forms, it is recorded in almost every European country. In general there are two origins, the first being that the name identifies a former citizen of Rome, but as for most people the only place that they had ever heard of outside their own country was Rome, this surname became a description for all Italians! The religious revival of the Middle Ages coincided with the crusades to 'free' the Holy Land.
