The ocarina is commonly considered to have been invented in the 1860's in Paris by an Italian named Giuseppe Donati. Its name is from an Italian word for "little goose," as its shape resembles a goose's egg. Other vessel flutes have been used since antiquity.
Today, types of ocarinas are popular in the US and Europe as children's toys.
