Etymological origin of Italian surname: Lisciandra


LISCIANDRA | LISCIANDRELLI | LISCIANDRELLO | LISCIANDRO

All decidedly Sicilian, Lisciandra is specific to Castelvetrano in the Trapani area and to Gela in the Nyssa area, Lisciandrelli and Lisciandrello are specific to Palermo, the second is also very present in Marineo and Bolognetta, also in Palermo, Lisciandro is specific to Palermo with a stock also Joyful Tide in the Messina area and in Messina. additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Dialect-like, the surnames Lisciandro, Lisciandrello, etc. all derive from the medieval name Alessandro, which, in Sicilian dialect, sounds like Lisciandro (see Alessandrella and Lisandrelli): the pronunciation Lisciandro, to be precise, is due both to an apheresis of the A- initial (as in Lissandro / Lisandro) and to an influence of the Greek dialects, in which the name Alessandro, at the phonetic level, directly recalls the original Alexandros, especially in the sound of -x- - at one time, the consonant -x- was pronounced similarly to the voiceless postalveolar fr-fractionative, as evidenced by several surnames scattered throughout Italy (for example, consider the surnames Craxi / Crasci, Maxia / Mascia, Moxedano / Moscedano, Puxeddu / Pusceddu, Ximenes / Scimenes, etc). In the case of Lisciandra, however, a derivation from Sicilian toponymy is not excluded, that is from the municipality of Alessandria della Rocca (AG), which, in the local dialect, is also known as Lisciànnira di la Rocca.
