Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cantergiani


CANTERGIANI

Cantergiani is specific of the Modena area, of Pavullo nel Frignano, Castelvetro of Modena, Sassuolo, Vignola, Castelnuovo Rangone and Modena, it could derive from an alteration of the medieval term castregianus, that is to say of the inhabitant of the Castrum Feronianum, ancient name of the current Pavullo in Frignano , but it could also derive from the name of the town of Cantergiano in the territory of the municipality of Pavullo nel Frignano in the Modena area. additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli we should consider the development of the Latin term 'cantherius / canterius', not so much in its meaning as 'castrated horse', but rather in that, used by Columella, of 'palo to support the vines'. 'Canterianus' (which does not exist in the classical Latin), could be a late term similar to 'cantheriatus' which instead exists and means 'placed on simple yokes, of screws placed on a trestle'. A kind of winemaker, then. G could be of epentetic origin.
