Etymological origin of Italian surname: Bossone


Bosso is typical and very widespread in Piedmont and Genoa, but it also has a large stock in the Neapolitan, especially in Naples, Bossone has small Piedmontese stocks in Turin, in Pieia in the Asti area and in Domodossola in the Ossola, and a stock of Lauro and Pago del Vallo di Lauro in the Avellino area and in Naples, Bossoni is typical of the Brescia area, Brescia, Salò, Verolanuova, Azzano Mella, Gottolengo, Pontevico and Quinzano d'Oglio, could derive, in some rare cases, from the truncation of the toponym Bossolasco in the Cuneo area, but most probably derive from modifications of the Germanic name Bosso, Bossonis, of which we have an example in a Charta venditionis of the year 1198 in Comabbio (VA): "... et ita possuere fideiussores, omni tempore defensores , Iohannem Ruinum et Ianuarium Bossonem, consules de loco Comabio, et Tempinum, deganum ipsius loci ... ", or by alterations of the Germanic medieval name Bozo or Bozzo (see BOZZA), or they could also derive from nicknames in some way l eged to the boxwood plant.
