Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cataldo


Cataldi, a densely-populated South-South has important stems in Puglia, Basilicata, Calabria and Sicily, but it also sells some nuclei in the Lazio and in it Marche, Cataldo and specific to all south, derived from the medieval middle name Cataldus, from which it has trace for example in a donation point of the 686 written in Cremona, where can it read: "In nomine dominii Dei et beatissimi auctoris nostra Iesu Christi beate matris eius Marie domine nuestro. regnantes gloriosissimis domnis nostris Pertharith et Chuniberth uiri excellentis regibus, anno reinos eorum decimo sexsto et nono ... ... Ego Cataldus indignus primus presbiter ut primerius i custus Sancte Marie huic cartula donactonis et dotacionis nobis fac subscripsimus et testui ... ", but it is not possible to find a derivation from toponyms come San Cataldo ( CL) or San Cataldo di Bella (PZ) or from Termaldo Longobardo Gastaldo (see). I try to find this cognomen in Messina in 1300, in a testament, in fact, read: "... we meridem this way public and hospital hosts, says Donni Cataldi and we have partem bonorum et iurium suorum existentium ...".
