Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cosmai


COSMAI

Cosmai is typical of Bisceglie in the Bari area, it should derive from the Greek name Kosmas, but a probable derivation from the Norman name Gossmann should also be taken into consideration, given the considerable Slavic presence on site one cannot even overlook a derivation from a nickname originated from the word Slavic kosmac (hairy, bearded man), traces of this surname can be found in the Bari area since the 1600s.
