It looks like Nicandro to me. While I haven't run across this name where I research (Molise), there are two comuni in Puglia which bear this name: San Nicandro Garganico (FG) and Sannicandro di Bari. I believe it is a name of Spanish or Greek origin.

Thanks. I need a break from this! Mom gave me a whole list of names to research today but I'll do it tomorrow. This is definitely a brother, as is Francesco. Sisters are Maria, Rosa, Concetta, and Carmella Fuda. Getting these names were like pulling teeth. I had to find Domico and Francesco though.
