Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cote


Cota would seem Pugliese, with a stock in the Foggia area of San Severo and Mattinata, and a small one in Lecce in Lecce and Taviano, Cote is almost unique, Coti has a stock in Casarano in Lecce and a very small one, perhaps secondary to Morengo in the Bergamo area. in Crema in the Cremona area, they could derive from a nickname originating from the archaic Albanian term kota (a trivial, useless thing), we also find rare presences in the Sondriese, where the origin could be from the dialect word cota (sharpening stone), perhaps to indicate that the progenitor made the peasant by trade, often seen holding the stone to sharpen the scythe.
