Is Pilone an Italian surname?

Postby QuestionSleep » 14 May 2005, 08:21

Is Pilone an Italian last name? If it it what does it mean?

My father thinks his grandmothers maiden name was either Pilloli or Pilone. I don't know if either of them are, or if they are spelled right.
If somebody could tell me if it is or not it would be helpful.

There were 68 Pilone
7 Piloni
0 Pilloli

The spelling Piloli may be a mispelling of the surname Piloni. Both the names Pilone and Piloni are quite common in the Lombardy and Piedmont regions. Do you know where your ancestors were from in Italy?

Hi, Pilone or also Piloni is italian surname coming from pilus latin word, that was the "javelin", so the Pilone( 1 person) or Piloni( many persons) was the roman wariors with the javelin arm....; more Pilone surname is tipically of Torino common, but also are diffused in Abruzzo region and in Puglia(apulia) region........... regards, suanj
