One of our members has been doing a lot of research and has passed along some info that could be linked to my tree. However, two given names are very strange and I have never seen them before - can someone translate them or translate whatever may be similar? They are: Ciriaco - a male name and Gaudenzio - also a male name.
Ciriaco is a first name given in honor of Saint Ciriaco.. the story saying that he was named Giuda and he was a jew that helped Saint Elena mother of Costantino Emperor ... after he become christian... and had also Ciriaco first name so he become: "Judas /Giuda + Cyriacus (or Quiriacus)= dedicated to Lord" ...
abt Gaudenzio first name( in honor of Saint Gaudenzio) it means:" who enjoy" and as misbris saying coming from "gaudium" latin word, meaning "joy"
