Roveda Surname History

ROVEDA early origins

The origins of the name ROVEDA  are from ancient Hungarian culture.

In old Hungary, prior to many Language Reforms, the alphabet used was ROVAS.

Rovas was a compound language from the merging of the Runic Alphabet from Germany and archaic Aramaic Script.

In the Rovas alphabet, a person whom was literate was called  ROVEDA.

In order to establish cultural position, people who were literate started adopting  the Adjective as a Family name, thus creating the last name.

Numerous Hungarian families lived in Austria which, by bordering territories, led to immigration to Italy.

Once in Italy, several families holding the last name Roveda were

mandatorily converted from Judaism to Catholicism.

With the political separation of Austria and Hungary, Ashkenazi  families that left

Hungary to live in Austria began using common German last names and began

using Roveda as a first name to somehow keep the family bond.

Nowadays, the name is still encountered in scattered

Ashkenazi Austrian communities, such as in small areas of Argentina.
