The Scalise surname( and also in the shape ScalisI)is an etnic surname, why coming from Scalea town name(Calabria region), and Scalise means inhabitant of Scalea town..The Scalea name coming from an greek word "Askalos" and after in the time are latin word "Ascula", that means "Scala" (Bravo Peter!), and also in arabe word, around 1154, the same name "Scaliath"..regards, suanj

PS: some genealogic tree of Scalise italian parent of Scalise emigrants in USA
