Female/Male Surnames one family

wldspirit replied to this, but thought one of our Italian members would know the answer. So, I'll try again :!: :)

I am wondering if there is or was an Italian custom that gave males in a family one spelling of the surname & another spelling to all the females.

I have found this on birth acts in a family from the Napoli area.

All males under Pagone. All females are Paone.

Has anyone else come across this same thing?

Thanks.

jcsm,

I did find the same thing when I looked for Macchione...I think it was because a lot of people would read or write properly so they gave out the wrong info or it was transcribed differently. The boys had one spelling and the girls another.

Its happened on other names as well.

Nuccia :D

sometime, especially in the past time, was in a family member the different spell on birthact; obviously was a error of officer, in this case the person with mistaken surname by court it made to change the mistaken spell in right spell; but was always necessary the court sentence, otherwise the surname remained wrong; it don't is for male or female person, was just a error case...
