COLAO | COLAU

Colao would seem typical of Catanzaro and Crotone, of Simeri Crichi, Catanzaro, Soveria Simeri, Sellia Marina and Sersale in Catanzaro and of Cotronei, Crotone and Roccabernarda in Crotone, Colau is unique, the most probable hypothesis would lead to an apheretic form of the name Nicolao , perhaps brought by the founder, the less probable proposes a derivation from the archaic Portuguese term colao (counselor).
