Donnangelo

Postby shiloh_jacobs » 21 Sep 2007, 19:35

I understand that "don" or "donna" can be honorific titles. To the best of my knowledge my Italian family (immigrated to US in early 1900's) was of modest means. However an Italian friend, who his a lawyer in Milan, told me that my surname is very old and potentially of noble origin. Can anyone provide an insight on the family name "Donnangelo"? Thanks!
