history of the Schiano lo Moriello family name

Post by loliver » 06 Feb 2019, 22:36

Hello from the USA! I am hoping to find some historical note to the family name Schiano lo Moriello. I understand there are variations of the Schiano families, which I would like to gather information on that aspect of the name, but also a deeper look at the lo Moriello name - is it derived from the arrival of Muslims to the Campania region in the 13th century? I was told by someone with this name that lo Moriello meant 'of the dark'/ scuro, which would lend to North Africans', Moors, migration to Sicily, then to Southern Italy.

Thank you for providing insight & answers to these questions!
