Roggero is listed inthe Italian surname dicitonary as a variant of the base surname Ruggeri. Roggiero and Roggero as surnames spelled as such are from NW Italy and Rugiero being Neopolitan and Rogliero from Puglia regions. The name(s) stem from ancient French and Norman roots whose name first appeared in northern Italy in 900's AD as Rotecheriu and by the 11th century Rogerious.=Peter=

Hi Loves2Laugh,

I replied to your PM, but yes some of my family appears to be related into the Roggero lineage, that landed in PA and DE here in the States. Is that where your relatives are from?
