  2. Etymological origin of Italian surname: Bossolo

Etymological origin of Italian surname: Bossolo


Bossola, quite rare, is typical Piedmontese, with a stock in Vercelli and perhaps a secondary one in Turin, Bossoletti, very very rare, typical of Ancona, Bossoli, equally rare, should be Tuscan, Bossolini, absolutely rare, would seem to have a strain in the Pavia area at Retorbido, now disappeared, and a Tuscan between Siena, the area of Torrita di Siena, and the Arezzo area of Foiano della Chiana, Bossolo, extremely rare, it would seem Piedmontese, should all derive, directly or through hypocorisms, from the medieval name Bosolus, also a hypocorist of the medieval Germanic name Boso, Bosonis (see BOSELLI), of the use of this name we have an example in Arezzo in a writing of 1476: "... Cunizellus clericus iudicavit canonicis medietatem su partis eiusdem altaris; pro alia medietate filius eius Bosolus et nepotes sui, fili Brittoli, acceperunt XII solidos ab ipsis. ", or even from names of places originating from the presence of boxwood plants, but it is also possible and that derive from names of localities such as Bossola (AT), Bossola di Castelnoceto (AL) or Bossolasco (CN). additions provided by Daniele Zaia Bossola could also derive from two other toponyms, a fraction of the Comune of Nizza Monferrato (AT) and a fraction of the Municipality of Carmagnola (TO).
