Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cavalca


Cavalca would seem to be specific to the Reggio, Parma and Parma areas in particular, it should derive from the medieval name Cavalca, it should be a derivation from a truncated form of the name Cavalcante (see CAVALCANTE), whose name we have an example in the Dissertations above the Italian antiquities of Ludovico Muratori (1672 - 1750), who wrote: "... Farulfo et Teudegrimo germanis quondam Farolfi, de quibus descendunt Lambardi quidam de Sancto Miniate, scilicet Cavalca Lambardus et filii ...", an illustrious principle of this we find the name in the 1300s with Friar Domenico Cavalca from Vico Pisano of the Order of Friars Preachers.
