Etymological origin of Italian surname: Caramanna


Caramagna is decidedly Sicilian, originating from the Syracuse area in particular, but it also has a Piedmontese stock, completely separated from the Sicilian one, this strain should derive from the names of countries such as Caramagna di Imperia, Caramagna di Morsasco nell'alandandrino or Caramagna Piemonte in the Cuneo area, Caramania it would appear to be southern and has now disappeared, Caramanna has a Sicilian stock in the nissenus of San Cataldo and Delia, in Palermo, in Canicattì in the Agrigento area and in Agira in the Enna, with a stock also in Rome and Naples, they should all derive from the name of Caramania, the Anatolian region facing the island of Cyprus, probably the original place of the founders, or place where they had perhaps participated in the Crusades.
