first name with the suffix of antonio

Postby palmgps » 27 Oct 2010, 23:20

I was looking for Donato Cirone when I found in Ellis Island an entry for Donantonio Cirone. Then in familysearch.org I found a Giuseppantonio Cirone. What is the meaning of the name that has a suffix of antonio? Is this a common naming tradition?

My GGGF's name was Giuseppantonio and he had several grandchildren named Giuseppe and Giuseppa / Giuseppina. I've always assumed it was a first name/middle name (Joseph Anthony) elided because these names end/start with a vowel.

Giuseppantonio is considered to be different from Giuseppe Antonio.
