Etymological origin of Italian surname: Costabile


Particularly widespread between Neapolitan, Salerno and Cosenza should derive either from the name Costabile or from the Byzantine charge, later passed into use in the Middle Ages, of Comes Stabulae (official in charge of the administrations of the royal stables), traces of this surname we find in one of the writings ferraresi of the 1500s: "... Tunc omnes summi viri auctoritate, exemplo, oratione Casellae commoti, certatim humeros suos et colla feret meo subiecerunt: ipse praetor urbanus, ipse Lodovicus Casella, referendarius tanti ducis, Paulus Costabilis, Ferrariensis rei publicae gubernator,. .. ". additions provided by Vincenzo Costabile San Costabile, third abbot of the abbey (abbey) of Cava dei Tirreni in the Salerno area, patron saint of Castellabbate in the Salerno area.
