Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cerina


Cerina has a Sardinian strain in Ogliastra in Ilbono in particular, and an autonomous in the Novara area of Trecate, Cirina, typical of the Cagliari area, seems to be specific to the area of Selegas, Senorbì and Silius, the origin should be very different, that of the Piedmontese lineage could derive from dialectal modification of the ethnic Cerano (NO), that of the Sardinian strains probably derives from nicknames originated from the archaic word of Ogliastra such as cerina or chirina (fence for sheep or pigs). additions provided by Giuseppe Concas CIRINA: derives from kirra, chirra, cirra (see Chirra). With the term chirrìna or kirrìna or cirìna it is indicated, in the central dialects, the pig fence or better of the sow, which here in Campidano we commonly call s'aùrra; word, the latter, which comes from the ancient Italian arella = small stable and from the Latin harula. For etymology see Chirra. We did not find it in the ancient documents we consulted. He is currently present in 78 Italian Municipalities, of which 35 in Sardinia: Senorbì 66, Cagliari 54, Assemini 27, Ortacesus 21, etc.
