Origin of LaBasco Surname

Postby tlabasco » 14 May 2015, 21:44

My last name is spelled LaBasco. I'm attempting to look for the location in Italy from which it originates. The actual spelling could be La Basco, or there is a good possibility it has a lower case "b", Labasco. My current search indicates that the suffix, "asco", is from the Piemonte or Liguria areas. I found many cities ending in "asco" in that area of Italy. There is also a possibility it is from the Basque region given I have seen the name spelled "LaBasco", "LoBasco", and "LeBasco" (Italian, Spanish, and French versions?) and Basco is Italian for Basque. Finally, it could have something to do with a beret. I just don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

most probably the right surname was and is: Lobosco (popular in Potenza and Salerno areas especially)

If you are in the USA, and you know the name of your ancestor who went there (and, better, when, he did) maybe we can find his manifest of arrival, and his original surname.
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi
