Etymological origin of Italian surname: Liofante


LEOFANTE | LEOFANTI | LEONFANTI | LIOFANTE

Leofante, now virtually disappeared, would seem to have been Sicilian, but of French origins, Leofanti, absolutely rare, is Tuscan from Lucca, Leonfanti is almost unique, perhaps Marche, Liofante is practically unique, they should all derive, directly or through various alterations, from medieval name Leofante (Elefante), of which we have an example of use in an act of 1421 where he is among the witnesses: ".. Ego Alferius de Leofante testor. ..".
