Meaning of last name

Postby maddief » 14 Jun 2009, 15:20

I'm currently trying to help my boyfriend do some genealogy work. His last name is Liberatoscioli. I understand that liberato means "freed" but I can't seem to find anything on scioli. Any ideas? Thank you!

The only reference anywhere near to your word that I could find is that of SCIOLINA.

here's that explanation:

sciolìna
TS sport, composto chimico a base di cera, paraffina e sim., che, applicato alla soletta dello sci, ne regola l’attrito sulla neve aumentandone o anche diminuendone la capacità di scorrimento [quadro 19]

Sport, chemical compound with a wax base, parrafin and the like., that, applied on the sole of a ski, regulates the adherence on the snow increasing or diminishing it's capacity to slide.
So - with the 'a' ending, it would be just ski wax...
