Subsequently, Fedele became a prominent painter within the Capuchin Sicilian province, witness a number of productions in the Capuchin churches of Nicastro, Ciminna, and the Jeremiah chapel of Palermo cathedral.

Zita Zita. Sometimes both surnames are written the proper first , usually separated by in e. Giuseppina Mauri in Crivelli. Some women, when using their proper surname alone, may add a giovane to the name e. Mauri giovane to indicate clearly that it is not their husband's name. Knowing the birth order of siblings, therefore, often provides a clue to the names of their grandparents.
Each of these sons marries and has his children. According to custom, they will all name their first son Vito, after their father, and they will all name their first daughter Rosa, after their mother. We have three Vito Savinos all born in the same town, within the same generation, possibly even born in the same year. The same situation exists for Rosa Savino. And this is a greatly simplified example since most Italians in this time period had more than three children! All the children would follow this naming tradition, even the daughters, although the daughters would name the second son and second daughter after their maternal grandparents.
Be aware, however, that exceptions do occur. A grandfather might suggest, for example, that the grandson about to be given his name be baptized instead with the name of a son of his who died in infancy many years earlier. This is common when no other member of the family bears the name of that deceased infant. Such a wish would be honored, and a subsequent grandson would be given this grandfather's name. Or a grandmother may ask that the granddaughter to be named for her be given instead the name of a saint to whom she holds a special devotion.
In this case, a subsequent granddaughter would be given this grandmother's name. Carrying this tradition over to America caused dilemmas for first-generation Americans. If the grandmother was Crucifissa, for instance, which means Crucifix, the granddaughter might be baptized Christine. If the grandfather was Rosario Rosary , the grandson might be called Russell. Why Vincenzo, which translates as Vincent, became James is an issue of speculation among Americans of Italian descent.
To be certain that you are tracing your immigrant ancestor and not a same-named cousin, learn two more facts: 1 the approximate year of his or her emigration from Italy, and 2 his or her approximate age at that time. Italian surnames ending in o usually come from southern Italy, whereas in northern Italy they can often be found ending with i. Tracking down the sources and variations of your Italian surname is an important part of Italian genealogical research and unveils an important part of your family history and Italian heritage.
Where did the Italian Tortorici family come from? When did the Tortorici family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name? Spelling variations of this family name include: Tortella, Tortela, Tartella, Tortelli, Tortello and many more.
First found in Naples, formerly Napoli or Neapolis, formerly capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in southern Italy it is the chief city of the province of Naples. Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Paolo Tortorice, who came to West Virginia in ; Vincenzo Tortora, who came to New York, NY in ; and Guiseppe Tortorici, who arrived in Arkansas in Nicknames Many Italians brought with them to America the custom of calling one another by nicknames. Usually the nickname was an altered form of the given name. For instance, Pepina is short for Giuseppina, which in turn is a diminutive or affectionate form of Giuseppa Josephine.
Therefore, Pepina might be translated as Jo, and Giuseppina as Josie. Giovannino, the diminutive form of Giovanni John , may be translated as Johnny. Antonino Tony is short for Antonio Anthony. However, both Giovannino and Antonino might be called simply Nino. Sometimes the nickname had nothing to do with the given name. My Uncle Tony, for example, was baptized Giovanni. But after his father Antonio died, his mother wanted to keep the name Antonio in the family.
So she called her son Antonio rather than Giovanni, and the name stuck. Uncle Tony never did use his given name. Family lore has it that the man liked to play that simple musical instrument. Turturici Spellings and Misspellings:.https://ghotistigubuc.ga

Hilary and St. ONE of the happinesses of living in Rome is to be able to visit some church of a saint every time his feast comes around. These old monks and hermits -- like Paul, Hilarion, Anthony, and many others -lived to a great old age, and were all more than centenarians when they died. Hilary was born at Poitiers sometime around A. He was a convert from paganism.
Hilary was made bishop of Poitiers. He was so strong in his fight against Arianism that the Emperor Constantine exiled him. Hilary wanted to strengthen the Catholic Faith so he wrote many books including his most famous - "De Trinitate". Hilary died in A. To pick up the paper trail of your Italian family on the other side of the Atlantic, you must know the name of your immigrant ancestor.
Could anything be more self-evident? But learning that single piece of information may pose an unexpected challenge. Surnames have changed over the centuries. Some Italians were known by nicknames. Others used detti, or family nicknames. Still others went by patronymics. Here are a few cultural considerations to keep in mind as you search for your Italian ancestor's name. Surname Changes Many Italian surnames have been transformed in the United States—shortened, spelled differently, changed completely.
Reasons for these name transformations, and the stories passed on from generation to generation about them, are myriad. Whatever family name you may use today, to pursue your research in Italian records you will have to learn what your immigrant ancestor's original surname was. And do not be surprised to find the surname spelled two, three, or more ways in old documents. Only since the twentieth century has the orthography spelling of surnames been rigidly fixed. Fucilla's Our Italian Surnames.
These books suggest the geographic area in Italy where each name and its antecedents were derived, and they indicate where the name is concentrated today. If you have not yet discovered your ancestors' native town, this information will narrow your focus to a particular province or region. The etymology of your surname how it developed also hints at where your family research may ultimately lead. People of many national origins compose the population of modern-day Italy.
However, onomatology the study of the origin and development of proper names is an artful science, and surname dictionaries sometimes propose different interpretations of the same name. The American genealogist named Checati who has not consulted a surname dictionary might miss the possible link between his own ancestors and the Cecato individuals he keeps coming across in old Italian records. Naming Children It is also important to know your immigrant ancestor's given name or names. Since at least the sixteenth century, tradition has dictated how Italian parents name their children.
A couple's first son is given the name of the father's father; the first daughter is given the name of the father's mother. The second son is given the name of the mother's father; the second daughter is given the name of the mother's mother. Subsequent children are given their parents' names, or the names of favorite or unmarried or deceased aunts and uncles. Because of this custom, the same given names reappear in Italian families generation after generation. These additional facts will distinguish your ancestor from relatives having the same given name and surname.
Jewish Patronymics and Surnames Americans researching Italian ancestors who were Jewish have other name issues to consider. Some Jews in Italy adopted hereditary surnames along with their non-Jewish neighbors as early as the tenth and eleventh centuries making them the first in Europe to do so. Normally, they either translated their Hebrew name or assumed the name of their place of origin.
Other Italian Jews, however, continued to practice the ancient custom of patronymics, whereby an individual was identified by his or her given name and the given name of his or her father—Samuel ben Jacob, for example Samuel, son of Jacob , or Sarah bar Benjamin Sarah, daughter of Benjamin. How did record keepers distinguish between two Jews with identical names and patronymics? At that time, some Italian Jewish families took as their surname the name of their town or city. Detti Some old Italian records identify interested parties by both a hereditary surname and a detto.
A detto was more than a nickname because it was used by multiple members of the family, often for more than one generation. For example, the death record of Salvatore Iannizzi, dated 29 December , records him as Iannizzi Salvatore Zanella. As was customary in Italian recordkeeping, the surname Iannizzi precedes the given name Salvatore.
But notice the additional name Zanella. Though the word detto does not appear in this case often it does , Zanella was indeed a detto used by this family for several generations. How can we know this? Individuals born in neighboring towns do not appear in the records with the detto until they move to Mammola and marry into this clan.
The custom of using a detto was more prevalent in some towns than others. In some places the practice was not observed at all. This reflects the wide variation you will find in records created throughout the Italian peninsula and islands of Sicily and Sardinia over the centuries. Local customs varied. When your ancestors came to America, was it their surname they went by, or their detto? These few cultural observations demonstrate that Italian surnames have changed over time, that some Italians were known by nicknames or detti rather than their legal names, and that Italian Jews used patronymics for centuries before they adopted fixed surnames.
Keep these considerations in mind as you attempt to pick up the paper trail of your family in Italian records. Maybe the family name you use today was never a surname at all!
John Philip Colletta, Ph. Most of them have both a masculine and a feminine version which I'll divide here with a slash. It's hard to think of anything funny to say about the Romans. They are not known for their sense of humor. Just about any emperor will do except Nerone, for obvious reasons. Mothers everywhere shudder at the thought. I did, however meet a woman named Nerina - not a common name - but she was not a nice person. A lot of names are simply Latin or even Greek words, often Italianized. Another type of name rooted in Roman history is the practice of naming children a number.
