Etymological origin of Italian surname: Casulli


Casulla, almost unique, is probably due to a transcription error of the following ones, Casulli is specific to the Bari area, where it is very common in Putignano and Noci, with good presences also in Massafra and Palagiano in the Taranto area and in the Bari area also in Castellana Grotte, Mola of Bari, Alberobello, Conversano and Monopoli, Casullo, decidedly more rare, is specific of the Foggia area, of Accadia and Monteleone di Puglia, could derive from medieval names of localities such as this mentioned in a Neapolitan act of 1263: "'... abitator de loco here named Casulla Balentiana ... ", but we can also consider a derivation from the Spanish term casulla (chasuble, the ancient name of the priestly planet, the liturgical vestment used by the presbyter to preside over the Eucharistic celebration, a kind species of long poncho), perhaps because the founders used to wear this type of dress.
