Search Etymological origin of Italian surnames


Casula, decidedly Sardinian, is widespread throughout the island, with maximum concentration in Cagliari, Selegas, Assemini and Serdiana (CA), Siris and Oristano (OR), Villamassargia, Carbonia and Iglesias (CI), Olbia (OT) and Nuoro should derive from nicknames derived from the Sardinian term casula (stazzo, country shelter), perhaps thanks to the activity of shepherd of the progenitor. additions provided by Giuseppe Concas CASULA; CATZULA: in all the spoken languages of the island it means planet, dress that the priests bring to celebrate the mass. From the Spanish casulla. From the Latin casula. In Latin, besides planet, it also means small house. As a surname it has spread throughout Sardinia since ancient times. Among the signatories of the Peace of Eleonora, LPDE, dated 1388, there are: Casula Anthonio, majore (administrator, mayor) ville Gorare (* Gorare ... Odierna Borore. Marghine de Gociano); Casula Arçoco, Laconi villas (** Laconi.et Contrate Partis Alença et etc. seu Atara Barçolo, officers Curatoria de Parte Alença. In posse Penna Ambrosii et filii Guiducii (Penna) notaries ... die XII januarii 1388. (nisi pastores bestiarium et etc.). In the Condaghe of San Pietro di Silki, CSPS, 11th, 13th century, the name Casula appears: monticlu de Casula (19th), in a land purchase (comporu): compostaili to Gunnari de Thori Pistanka su latus (the middle) dessu saltu d'Arave (medieval village, villa, bidda, disappeared towards the end of the XIIIth century. It belonged to the Curadorìa of Flumenargia, in the kingdom of Torres) .et fallat in sos ballicos (declines in small valleys) derettu assu monticlu de Casula (straight up to the hill of Casula) .In the Condaghe of San Nicola di Trullas, CSNT, 11th, 13th century, we have: Casubla (Casula - the b is added by another hand, to indicate the call) Michali, servant in Usune (the current Usini: (SS) inhabited center with 4000 souls, with agricultural economy a, famous for its vineyards), and its daughter Maria (256): ego presbiter Dericor ki poniu in custu condake II terrales (two colonists) integros a Ytcioccor de Bosia, fiiu (son) de Janne Upload and Mary, fiia de Michali Casubla. In the history we remember Casula Antonio, illustrious personage of Nurri, lived in the last Spanish period of the Kingdom of Sardinia. In 1701 he obtained the hereditary knighthood and nobility. He left all his patrimony to the Jesuits, because they founded a religious college in Nurri (inhabited center of the Sarcidano - prov. CA - with 2430 souls; its origins are prehistoric. The ancient building of the Jesuit College is today used as the Town Hall ). The surname Casula is currently present in 458 Italian Municipalities, of which 204 in Sardinia: Cagliari 376, Sassari 214, Assemini 186, Olbia 133, etc. Catzula (probably the incorrect transcription of Casula, who is present in Meana Sardo in number 40 and in Bosa in number 26), is present in 9 Italian Municipalities, of which 2 in Sardinia: Meana Sardo 32, Bosa 3.
