Etymological origin of Italian surname: Codispoti


CODESPOTI | CODISPOTI

Codespoti, absolutely rare, typical of the Reggio area, is due to an alteration of the surname Codispoti, which is very widespread in the Catanzaro area in Sant 'Andrea Apostolo dello Ionio, Catanzaro and San Sostene, in Strongoli in the Crotone and Bovalino and Careri in the Reggio area, these surnames should derive from nicknames originated from the Greek verb oikodespoteô (to be landlord) that is to be despotes (lord, head of the house), probably aimed at progenitors particularly quoted in the environment in which they lived.
