Meaning of name Mortellaro?

Postby ptimber » 14 Feb 2003, 02:23

There is no listing for the surname Mortellara in the Italian surname directory which indicates that it is local in origin. The Italian word dictionary has a word ...and this is mere speculation on my part.. MortellaBilberry a large leafed variety of the common myrtle plant. The name indicates that any working with myrtle would be Mortellaro but again this is conjecture on my part. Peter
