Ito Name Meaning

Japanese (Ito): variously written; one of the ten most common Japanese surnames. The most usual rendering means ‘Fujiwara of Ise’ (Ise no Fujiwara); Ise is now part of Mie prefecture. These Ito claim descent from Fujiwara no Hidesato (10th century), of the northern branch of the clan. Another prominent Ito family (whose name means ‘eastern Izu’), one-tenth as numerous, takes its name from a district now part of Shizuoka prefecture. They too are of Fujiwara descent, through Sukechika (d. 1181), a grandson of Kudo Ietsugu of the southern Fujiwara. Both Ito surnames are found in the Ryukyu Islands.
