PETRUNA > PĕTRōNĭUS
MEANING:
This name derives from the Etruscan “petruna”, via Latin “pĕtrōnĭus”. The Petronius family seems to have been originally Roman but in fact was Etruscan. Ash urns were found in Perusia (now Perugia) with Etruscan inscriptions, and there are old grave stones with the Etruscan name "Petruni", around the sixth and seventh centuries. Saint Petronilla is venerated as a virgin martyr by the Catholic Church. She died in Rome at the end of 1st century, or possibly 3rd century. Petronius Probinus was an aristocrat and statesman of the Roman Empire, Roman consul and Praefectus Urbi of Rome.
