I am wondering if there is or was an Italian custom that gave males in a family one spelling of the surname & another spelling to all the females.
I have found this on birth acts in a family from the Napoli area.
All males under Pagone. All females are Paone.
Has anyone else come across this same thing?
Having problems with the Italian language? Do you need help to translate or understand an old family document? There is always someone who can help you!

I had read somewhere, and for the life of me, I cannot remember where...... .......of male surname variations.........but not female variations.........Suanj, Riccardo or one of our Italian residents would know......
