GAMBA | GAMBE | GAMBI | GAMBO

Gamba is widespread throughout the north, with strains also in Lucca, Pisa and Livorno, in the Pesaro, Rome and Latin areas, in the Neapolitan and Cosenza areas, Gambe, which would seem unique, is from Reggio, Gambi is widespread above all in Ravenna , but with discreet presences also in the Bolognese, Forlì and Florentine and a small stock also in the Ancona, Gambo, almost unique, is probably due to a transcription error, these surnames should derive from an apochopaic form of the Lombard name Gambara (see GAMBARA ), although it cannot be excluded that in some cases they may be derived from nicknames originating from a physical characteristic of the progenitor, such as speed in the run or having longer legs than normal.
