Etymological origin of Italian surname: Angei


Angei, quite rare, is typically Sardinian from San Gavino Monreale in the Medio Campidano, where it is also present in Samassi. additions provided by Giuseppe Concas ANGEI: (angèi - could derive from angèî (with nasalization of i, due to the fall of the "n") on the meaning and the etymology remain uncertainties. We suggest the stem "agn." of the Latin agnus = lamb. do not neglect the Greek root άγγ of άγγος, which means container, amphora, jug etc. In Greek we also have the word άγνοσ (agnos) = agnocast (su pibiri sardu) and αγνός (agnòs) = chaste, pure, venerable. Greek verb άγχω = distress, I create suffering. It is a rare surname, with most of the presences in San Gavino Monreale (Medio Campidano). We find it in 28 Italian Municipalities, of which 15 in Sardinia: San Gavino 79, Samassi 18, Cagliari 8, Villacidro 6, etc.
