Etymological origin of Italian surname: Legena


Legena, very very rare, would seem to be specific of Sellero in the Brescia area, it should derive from a nickname based on the medieval Lombard dialectal term legena (a bucket for milking), probably to indicate that the progenitor carried out that type of task.
