Lauri/Lauro

Postby jay gulbin » 19 May 2012, 08:07

How likely is it that Lauri could be spelled, even in Italian print.....could they have misspelled it?

Is it a fair deduction that Lauri and Lauro might be the same person?

LAURI, LAURO and LAURA, very rarely seems to be specific to the province of Imperia, Lauri is widespread in the central belt including Umbria, Marche, Lazio and Abruzzi, also with a strain in the Naples, Lauro is typical of Neapolitan should be derived from the Latin name Laurus (consecrated to Apollo) mentioned for example in this cenotaph of Lombard times: "... Laurus eras, Umfrede, Tuas academia frondes iactavit merit, Caserta superb, diu ...", it is also possible, in some cases, a derivation by names such as Lauro (AV) and (EC) and the like. Traces of this cognominizzazione are found both in Fano (PS), which since 1500 in Macerata.
