I've seen it as a nickname, shortened version of Pasqualina.

Hi John and wldsprt

The link I'm providing is great for researching italian names. It lists Pasqua under rare female names etc.

I've found this link to be very useful. Hope it helps

I've found that the earlier church records (circa 1700) used Pasquo and Pasqua on baptismal records. Pasco and Pasca are also used during that period. Once in a while Pascale is used. In fact, during the period 1697-1724, the Campobasso church records used these names to the complete exclusion of Pasquale and Pasqualina. The civil records of the 19th century seem to use Pasquale and Pasqualina.

From: http://fralenuvol.com/albero/sapere/significato/nomi/p

PASQUA/PASQUALE
Nome italiano che viene solitamente dato a quei bambini nati appunto il giorno di Pasqua, festa cristiana della resurrezione di Cristo e significa "passare oltre". Pasqua può essere festeggiata il giorno appunto di Pasqua. Altre forme femminili: Pasquetta, Pasqualina, Pasquita, Pasquarosa. Pasquale invece può essere festeggiato il 1° maggio in onore di San Pasquale Baylon, morto nel 1592. Secondo la tradizione avrebbe inventato lo zabaione. E' patrono dei cuochi, dei pastori, delle nubili e dei congressi eucaristici.

Pasqua was a common female name used for a kid born on Easter-day. Pasquale is the male form.

hello all, thankyou everyone for your help, it seems unusal to use the name on a birth record in the 19th century in such a shortened state. would they have exepted that as the full name then as it was written pasqua? take care, kind regards, john

Hi,
Pasqua is not the shortened version of any other name. Pasqua as said is a common female name.

HERE in the USA it has been used as a nickname, from the name PASQUALINA.....and they pronounced it PAS-KA....is it common no,
common would be Lena...which to the younger generation sounds OLD.
