Etymological origin of Italian surname: Licausi


CAUSI | LI | LICAUSI

Li Causi is specific of western Sicily, of Palermo and of Trapani, of Marsala, Castelvetrano, Partanna, Santa Ninfa, Trapani, Erice and Valderice, Licausi, very rare, it would also seem to be of Sicilian origin, from Trapani. in particular of the area of Santa Ninfa, Partanna and Marsala and of Sciacca in the Agrigento region, they could derive from nicknames originating from the Greek expression lykoi àndres (wolf men), but it is also possible that it derives from the Greek archaic term alykàres (salt operator) ) craft perhaps carried out by the progenitor, one cannot however ignore the possibility that they derive from patronymic forms referring to progenitors whose fathers had called themselves by the Greek name Kaousios latinized in Causius.
