Valente Isodoro Giovanni

Postby Phryxe » 24 Sep 2009, 12:19

In a swedish record from 1903 there is a person written as Valente Isodoro Giovanni (from S:t Gassie in Caserta province). In Sweden that says his surname is Giovanni as we write given names before the surname, but I suspect that Valente is the surname. What do you think?

There are more than 1500 cities,towns and villages thruout Italy that have inhabitants surnamed VALENTE while there are only 14 GIOVANNI thruout Italy...www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi and put in names in the upper left for the surname distribution in Italy.

Valente seems to be the correct surname and Giovanni a first name. In Italy Last names are usually written first and followed by a first name in official and unofficial lists. =Peter=
