Etymological origin of Italian surname: La capria


CAPRIA | CAPRIO | LA CAPRIA

Capria has a Calabrese stock between Vibonese and Reggio with good presences also in the Messina area, Caprio is well present in all the band that includes the Viterbo, the Roman, the Latin and the frusinate, the Caserta, the Neapolitan, the Avellino and the Salerno, the Foggia, the Bari, the Potentino and the Cosenza areas, La Capria would seem to originate from the Foggia area, in the area of Apricena and Foggia, all these surnames should derive from the Latin name Caprius, Capria, quoted for example in a Sermon by Orazio: ". ..alias, iustum sit necne poema nunc illud tantum quaeram, meritone tibi sit suspectum genus hoc scribendi Sulgius acer ambulat et Caprius rauci evil cumque libellis, magnus uterque timor latronibus; similis Caeli Birrique latronum ... ", although we cannot completely ignore the hypothesis that in some cases they may derive instead from the Arabic name Qabri.
