De Musis

Postby kmaldo » 18 Dec 2008, 11:35

I recently found out that my GGM's maiden name was De Musis, she lived in Taurasi, near Avellino. This doesn't look or sound very Italian to me ... I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the origins or linguistics of the name? Thanks!!

The surname is not listed in the Dictionary of Italian surnames and it is considered to be either local in origin or imported from abroad. here are about 8 towns in Italy having inhabitants bearing that surname. =Peter=

I don't know about this name specifically, but I have cousins who have researched Torre le Nocelle and Taurasi.

If interested in following up with them, please respond to my email address.
