Etymological origin of Italian surname: Albanito


Albanito, very very rare, would seem typical of Torano Castello in the Cosenza area. additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Of origin arbëreshë (probably Greek-Albanian), the surname Albanito seems to come from an Italianization of the Greek surname Arvanitis, with the literal meaning of Albanian (the affinity with the Albanian surname is clear): during the history, in fact, the centuries-old phenomenon of Albanian emigration (the so-called Albanian diaspora) has often been directed towards Greece and, at the same time, towards Italy, giving rise, in both countries, to several surnames of origin Albanian (traditionally, the Italo-Albanians are called arbëreshë, while the Greek-Albanians are called arvaniti); in this context, moreover, it is important to note that many surnames arbëreshë actually come from Greece and not from Albania, since they are precisely arvanite surnames (see also Greek).
