Surname meanings

Postby Figini » 28 Feb 2007, 00:58

I recently did a search (with the help of the wonderful people on this board) on the meaning of my last name, and now my friends want to know theirs as well. Is there any way I could look them up myself ( I tried the links that were sent with my name, but with no luck) as not to drive everyone on here crazy with a list of names? Any tips would help a LOT!!!!!! Thanks so much in advance!!!!!

There is a book titled "Our Italian Surnames" by Prof. Joseph G. Fucilla
which you may find at your library or local book store that explains the meaning of many Italian surnames.
