Etymological origin of Italian surname: Amenta


AMENTA | AMINTA

Amenta is typically Sicilian, in particular from Syracuse and the Syracuse area, Canicattini Bagni, Floridia, Solarino and Lentini, from Palermo, Catania, Messina and in the Ragusa area of Scicli and Vittoria, with a small stock also in Matera and Matera, Aminta is almost unique, they should derive from the Greek name Amyntas (Αμύντας), which means defender, even if it is not possible to exclude a derivation from dialectal nicknames originated from the fact of inhabiting the family in areas close to fields of mint or, interesting hypothesis, even if absolutely little credible, from nicknames derived from the Egyptian Aha Men Ptah, the paradise and kingdom of the Egyptian dead.
