  2. Etymological origin of Italian surname: Lentisco

Etymological origin of Italian surname: Lentisco


Mastic, extremely rare, it would seem to be south-central, perhaps originating from Castelforte in the latinense area on the border with Caserta, it should derive from a nickname perhaps originated from the presence of a forest or a hedge of lentisk (pistacia lentiscus) in the family dwelling area, but it is also possible that, with that name, a mastiha (mastic) collector was indicated in the progenitor, the mastiha is an aromatic resin that drips from the incisions made three times a year by the mastic tree.
