Translation by - Gerbino Translation Service -
59) Gerbino The name has Arab origin (maybe from Gerba Island - the word means oasis). The first Gerbino in Italy was Andrea Gerbino (about 18th century), married with Giuseppa Giglio and they are originated from Mazara del Vallo (South Sicily). Many Gerbinos emigrated to North America, where they work especially as countrymen and farmers, with some shopkeepers and some professionals. Apart from Andrea, the most recurring names are Rosario, Vito, Gaspare and Vincenzo - later, we find Diego, Damillo and Nicoln.

A very big THANK YOU! to Jose Gerbino of Argentina for providing
a picture and information about the Gerbino Coat of Arms.

Gerbino Family Coat of Arms

The Gerbino Coat Of Arms
here by illustrated is officially documented in Crollalanza's Dizionario Storico-Blasonico.

.

The original description of the arms (Shield) is as follows:
"D'oro,alla fascia d'azzurro, attraversta da un albero sradicato di verde, sinistrato da un leone coronato dello stesso.
When translated the Blazon also describes the original colors of Gerbino arms as: "Gold; a blue horizontal band; a green uprooted tree placed over all; on it's left is a green crowned lion."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This definition was also with the Coat of Arms:
The surname Gerbino appears to be locational in origin. Our research indicates that it can be associated with the Italians, meaning, "dweller at or near a field". Many surnames have more than one origin.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Provided by Doc Gerbino of Virginia.
The Gerbino Coat of Arms dates back to the end of the war for unification of Italy, my great grandfather, Vincenzo Gerbino, fought with Garibaldi and was granted that coat of arms by Vittorio Emenuel II at the end of the War. He was also awarded a medal which I still have.
I would suspect that the Gerbino Coat of Arms grant, took place between Oct. 1860 (when Garibaldi handed over Sicily and Naples to VEII) and 1862 (When Garibaldi attempted to conquer the Papal States and was intercepted by the Italian government).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

During a search I've found a SECOND Gerbino Coat of Arms

This one is posted on the page about Mons. Saverio GERBINO, perhaps it was issued by the church as it resembles the church's crest???

I've found another Gerbino Family Crest that was issued in 1542 to Giovanni Gerbino  Click to read about this crest.

A Antonino was sworne of Salemi in 1467-68; a Giovanni was patrizio of Caltagirone in 1542-43 and perhaps it was same that Giovanni, than, with the 20 privilege of July 1542, obtained the title it of regal knight; a Ludovico was patrizio of Caltagirone in 1602-3; a Niccol? he was captain of justice of Mazzara in 1626-27; a Bartolomeo held the same charge in said city in 1632-33; a Stefano was judge of the pretoriana court of Palermo in 1668-69; a Placid one was sworne of Mazzara in 1701-2; a Niccol?

Allesandro Gerbino of Rome, Italy wrote that his great grandfather had told him:
"The name  Gerbino is a Sicilian family name that comes from the Arab influence in the south of Italy. More precisely it comes from Djerba, the Tunisian Island."  See my note about this theroy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This was provided by Chuck Gerbino of Virginia, USA
There is a region called Urbino, meaning nice city or similar and an entire clan lived there in north Italy, they were all Urbinos. There was a Duke of Urbino, a famous Italian city-state local warlord. Interestingly, cities  with that root (like Urbana, Illinois) could draw from the Latin root, urban = city, etc. The name Gerbino is probably the prefix G'urbino (son of Urbino_ just like Dangelo  (D'Angelo) son of Angelo. or like Abu Zien means the father of Zein, the Arabic prefix.

Father Richard Gerbino reminded us that the surname Gerbino means "man of small fortune."

I was told by my father, that our ancestor was the King of Sicily but he was kicked off his throne: here is the first Gerbino of royalty, (that has been found so far), but Gerbino is used as the first name:

Gulielmo II, King of Sicilie, according as the Sicilian Chronicles, had two children, the  one a son, named Don Rogero, and the other a daughter, Madame Constance. The saide Rogero died before his father, leaving a son behind him, named Gerbino, who with much care and cost, was brought up by his Grand father, proving to be a very goodly Prince, and wondrously esteemed for his great valor and humanity.
