Heres a link to the current surname distribution in Italy...

http://gens.labo.net/it/cognomi/genera.html

and a link to the italian phine listings of those still living in Italy with the surname..

Costello.

If you can provide us with any background names for your family (births, deaths, where they lived, etc) we may be able to pinpoint where you're from. I see your in Toronto where theres a very high Italian population.

Let us know...
