Etymological origin of Italian surname: Lamantia


The Mantia is decidedly Sicilian, especially from Palermo, with stocks in the Palermo area of Monreale, Bagheria and Termini Imerese, in the Agrigento area in Canicattì and Agrigento, in the Trapani area in Marsala and Trapani, in Catania and in the Nisseno, Lamantia, absolutely rare, always Sicilian , probably due to errors in transcription of the previous one, should derive from the Calabrian toponym of Amantea, but, most probably derive from the name of the ancient Illyrian (Albanian) city of Amantia, which occupied by the Turks in the XVIth century was abandoned by the inhabitants Christians who moved to Sicily.
