Integrations provided by Giuseppe Concas ADDIS: meaning and uncertainties. Potrebbe derives from badde, baddi = valley; baddis> addis = valli. In ancient texts, I have the words in several dates. In the Condaghe of St. Nicholas of Trullas, CSNT, XI, XIIIth sec. we took the variant balle, in the meaning of valley, quoted a lot of times; Also included in the CSMB, and in the CSPS, XI, XIIIth. sec., in this last appare balle, ualle e valle. Addis came to be known as the figure of the Pace di Eleonora, LPDE, from 1388, always preceded by "from" to indicate the origin: Addis (de) Gonnario, Islet de Galtelì (* Galtelì. Galtelì.odierno Galtelì); Addis (de) Joanne, sworn v. Fodrongiani (* Foddin. Fordongianus winter. Contrate Partis Varicati - Barigadu). In the CSNT, and present the last name "de" Balles: - Balles "de" Florisone e Balles "de" Gosantine (153), testimony in a donation of land in the church of San Nicola: ego Petrus prior (of Sanctu Nicola) put in This way you know.

In contemporary history I remembered Addis Ovid, of Teulada (1908 - 1966), specialized in Christian Archeology, collaborator of the Middle Eastern History Institute, in the University of Cagliari; He has left various works, including: "Un Sarcofago giudicale arborense"; "The Bronze Blossoms of the Duomo di Oristano". With gli scavi from 1964/1965, the necropolis and the paleo-christian basilica of Cornus (see in the Web - Ovidio Addis) appear. Currently, the last name is Addis and present in 181 Italian communities, of which 67 in Sardinia: Sassari 181, Tempio 150, Olbia 148, Buddusò 81, Lodè 71, Cagliari 70, etc.
