Etymological origin of Italian surname: Alloa


Alloa, very very rare, is specific to western Piedmont, especially to the Cuneo area, as well as the even rarer Alloi, present in the Cuneo area, should derive from a nickname originating from the French medieval term alleu (pronounced allö), which would indicate the origin of the forefather from free areas, not subjected to the Lordship of anyone.
