Hi Ted
Their are variations of the Name Alba
D'Alba Dealba. Most of the Orgins are from
Spain but the i believe got its start in
Italy in a place outside of Rome called Alba
Longa. This became part of Roman Empire around 600BC. This region grew grapes for
wine and still produce produce wine Today
And have many variations of wine under the
name D'Alba and De Alba for where they are
grown. The Reason you might find the name
Alba all over Europe is Their was a Church
of Alba and even a Alba Bible Produced in
Spain. These cristian begins became part of the Roman Church. Scotland was called Alba
around 800AD to 1000AD. Their are the Kings and queens of Alba.(Scotland)Duke of Alba
(Spain)Because of the Roman Church you will
find the name Alba all over Europe and Latin
America. Hope this helps. Thanks David Alba
