ELVETI | ELVEZI | ELVEZIO

Elvezi and Elveti are practically unique, Helvetius, absolutely rare, it would appear to be Neapolitan, these surnames could derive from the fact that the progenitor was of elevetic race, the Helvetii were a Celtic population settled between today's Switzerland and southern Germany, these surnames could go back to 1495, the time of the invasion of Naples by Charles VIII, king of France, with Swiss troops, who were forced to leave the city after a few months, perhaps leaving some element that had decided to abandon the French army , but a derivation from the Italian name Elvezio is also possible.
