Etymological origin of Italian surname: Iriu


IRIU

Iriu, extremely rare, typically Sardinian, in particular from Oristano, should derive from the toponym Iriu, we remember that Su Iriu is a small nuragic village near Gergei in the Nuoro area, but it could also derive from a process of sardination of the Basque term iri (village ) and would therefore indicate in the progenitor one of the village, but it could also derive from the Spanish toponym of Leon called Iruela. additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Irìu is a Sardinian surname varying from the surname Eriu, Deriu, and therefore also means: "del (casato) Riu".
