Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cerasino


Typical surname of central Italy Cerasa, may have strains in Lecce and Palermo, Cerasini, absolutely rare, is probably the consequence of transcription errors of the surname Cerasino, which is typically Apulian from Brindisi, Ostuni, Carovigno and Torre Santa Susanna, Ceresa seems to be specifically Lombard and Piedmontese, Ceresini is typically Parma, with presences also in Felino, Sala Baganza and Langhirano always in the Parma area. These surnames should derive from nicknames linked, directly or through hypocorisms, to the Latin word cerasum (cherry), in dialectal variants or to toponyms such as Cerasa (PS), Cerasuolo (IS), Ceresara (MN), Cereseto Monferrato (AL), etc. .
