Possibly Sciro. I'm pretty sure the first letter is an S.

Yes, definitely an "S". I can see that there is a dot there now, so yes, it may be Sciro rather than Saro. It's not so clear.

It's Schiro', a common name in Palermo. The "h" is crowded in with the next letters. There is an accent over the "o".
