Surname origins
Castrogiovanni, decisamente siciliano, molto diffuso in tutta l'isola, ma particolarmente nell'ennese da dove è originario, dovrebbe derivare dal toponimo Castrogiovanni, l'antico nome della città di Enna

Castrogiovanni, determined Sicilian, very spread in all of the island, but especially in the ennese from where is original, should be derived from the place name Castrogiovanni, the ancient name of the town of N.

The word "ennese" stands for the town of ENNA and its province.

Enna is not the letter N but a town and a province in Sicily.
