    Post Italian surnames



    How to recognise the region of origin of Italian family names ? Easy, just look at the suffix. Here are a few common ones from North to South.

    Piemonte

    -ero/ario (e.g. Barbe-ero, Molin-ero, Sobr-ero)
    -esio (e.g. Gorr-esio)
    -audi/aldi (e.g. Grib-audi, Ramb-audi)
    -asco (e.g. Com-asco, Cev-asco)

    Liguria

    -asco (e.g. Com-asco, Cev-asco)

    Lombardia

    -ago/aghi/ate/ati (e.g. Air-aghi, Arcon-ato, Gess-ati)
    -atti/etti (e.g. Ors-atti, Giorg-etti)
    -di/oldi (e.g. Sol-di, Garib-oldi)
    -ingo/inghi/enghi/engo (e.g. Martin-engo)

    Veneto

    -igo (e.g. Bardar-igo)
    -acco (e.g. Acco, B-acco, Bazz-acco, Biss-acco, C-acco, Feltr-acco, Pol-acco)
    # ending in -l/n/r (e.g. Cana-l, Mani-n, Carre-r)

    Fiuli

    -otti/utti/ut/ot (e.g. Bertol-otti, Bias-utti, Gregor-utti, Danel-ut,, Franz-ot)

    Toscana

    -ai/ini (e.g. Ast-ai, Boll-ai, Fornari-ini)
    -uoli/aiuoli (e.g. Acciai-uoli, Casci-aiuoli)
    -ingo/inghi/enghi/engo (e.g. Martin-engo)

    Sardegna

    -au (e.g. Bidd-au, Mad-au)
    -as (e.g. Cann-as, Pir-as)
    -u (e.g. Cafedd-u)

    Campania

    -isi (e.g. Tro-isi, Pugl-isi)

    Sicilia

    -isi (e.g. Tro-isi, Pugl-isi)
    -aloro (e.g. Fav-aloro, Orgli-aloro)



    Let's also note that 40% of Italian surnames are patronymic (from a given name), 35% are topographic (place name), and the remaining 25% are pseudonymic (nick name or descriptive).
