First name Eirdanio or Eridano?

Postby Help » 15 Aug 2015, 17:39

I found the marriage record of my uncle & his wife & on that record her father is listed as Eirdanio Scandiffio. When I searched Italian male first names I was unable to find it but there is a Eridano & am wondering if this is his correct first name.

It is difficult to say without seeing the record :-)

There is also a given name of Eridanio .

I agree with T that it's difficult to tell without seeing the record, however, there is an Italian given name Eridano

Thanks, the marriage record is in English as they were married in Manhattan, New York & is clear as Eirdanio so I think it was probably supposed to be Eridanio as this seems to be the closest spelling. I also noticed that the spelling of her mother's last name (maiden name) was spelled incorrectly so it doesn't surprise me.
