Origin of the surname "Murdica"

Postby LilChiChi » 16 Aug 2012, 05:55

I really need help!!!

I have been trying to research the origin, meaning of, suit of arms etc. for my husband and father-in-law for so long and can never find any information on our surname Murdica.

If anyone can help me with any information in regards to this name, would be greatly appreciated!

My father-in-law is from Briatico, Vibo Valentia, Calabria.

Thanks in advance for some help.

Hello, Murdica Surname is found in these Towns of Calabria:

Cimina
Oppido Mamertina
Cittanova
Taurianova

The latter two being more populated i believe, and where most emmigrated from!

Thanks again.

Thank you @suanj

That is another step to possibly finding where Murdica has come from!

I really appreciate the help, please let me know if you come across anything else.

Kindest Regards!
