Angioi is typical of the northern Sardinia of Alghero (SS) and of Irgoli and Ottana in the Nuoro area, Angioj is almost unique, Angioy, very very rare, although it is also present in the Nuoro and Sassari areas, it would seem more characteristic than Iglesias (CI), Angioni è specific to Cagliari and Cagliari, they should all derive from nicknames originated from the Sardinian word angioni (lamb), perhaps to indicate the job of shepherd, or, more probably, to indicate a discreet wealth of the family. additions provided by Giuseppe Concas ANGIOI; Angioj; ANGIONI; ANGIOY: all four have the same meaning and the same origin: lamb and derives from the Latin agnus.

Alternos viceregio. One of the most important characters in the history of Sardinia. He was born in Bono on 21, 10 of 1751. Son of a noble landowner. He lived in the Savoy period. After his middle studies he followed university studies and graduated in Philosophy and Arts. He was fascinated by the reformist ideas of the Minister Giambattista Lorenzo Bogino. He moved to Cagliari and graduated in Law (utroque jure) in 1771. In 1773 he held the chair of Civil Institutions. Later he obtained the appointment as Judge of the Royal Audience. In 1794, following the expulsion of the Piedmontese viceroy, power passed into the hands of the Royal Audience. He was one of the leaders of the Sardinian patriotic movement. He worked with all his strength to bring down the feudal system in Sardinia. The return of the Savoys to Sardinia and the pressure exerted by the Sardinian feudal lords against the reformist spirit of the Angioy, were the beginning of the end of his independence and reformist dream. His petitions to Napoleon Bonaparte for the conquest of Sardinia ended in France and were useless. Sardinia no longer interested the emperor. He died an exile and fell into poverty in Paris in 1808.
