The surname is most likely MATTEIS based upon the base surname Mattei appearing inthe Italian surname dictionary and mattie is a variant of that base surname. The De or Del means "Of or of the". The first name could possibly be REMIGIO derived from Saint Remigius (LATIN).

Go to www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi and insert Matteis for name distribution thruout Italy and click on NOMI above for first names by alphabet. =Peter=

they are wrong completely.. Peter given a good suggestion.. but it is hard to say.. because frankly I understand not if is abt a male or female person... the first name could be Diego, Biagio, Remigio... I believe Diego.... the surname could be DEL MATTO, DI MATTEO, DE MATTEIS etc... DEL MATTO could be possible....
