Can anyone please tell me the languages that are spoken and written in Lombardia? Was/Is Romansh spoken in the Alpine regions? I do not know if Romansh is the correct spelling in Italian (I believe it is Romansh in English, Romansch or Romantsch in German, and Rumantsch in Switzerland, but I am not certain of this).
I also have a few questions about names. Is Bartolomeo or Bartolomeus the spelling of Bartholomew in Italian? I have also seen a spelling of Bartolamus. What would be the Italian equivalent of Jerome? Also, I have not seen any words in Italian that begin with 'gier'. Does this combination exist, or would it be either 'ger' or 'ger'?
"Rhaeto-Romance languages are a Romance language sub-family which includes multiple languages spoken in North-Eastern Italy and Switzerland"
In Italy we call it "Romancio"
Bartolomeo is the correct spelling (in ancient latin Bartolomeus) : from ancient aramaic Â«barÂ», son and Â«talmaiÂ», farmer.
the italian equivalent for Jerome is Girolamo (or ancient Gerolamo) or rarely Geronimo.
(from www.britannica.com for example :
Girolamo Cardano, or Gerolamo Cardano, or Geronimo Cardano, or Jerome Cardan (Italian physician and mathematician)
In italian the combination gie don't exist: it is alwais GE like german,geriatric,genealogy, general and son one...
I'm searching lost relatives and descendant of my greatgrandfather Vincenzo Genualdi (or Gennaldi or Genuardi) and my greatgrandmother Concetta Davola (their sons: Angela, Carmela, Antonio, Bartolomeo, Ernesto, Simone, Riccardo, Maria) went in Chicago,Ill., and New Orleans, in 1880-1920 from Sicily. Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).
