Alighieri
Everyone knows Dante Alighieri but I haven't seen much on the etymology of his surname, I think it comes from a name but I would want to know both if its true, the name it comes from and what that name means.

Alighieri is a variant of Aldighieri which comes from a Germanic name composed of adal 'noble' or ald 'old' and gari 'spear'.
