Etymological origin of Italian surname: Lo re


The King is widespread throughout Sicily, with a small stock also in the Brindisi area, while Lore is very rare and is from the Bari area. Lorè, decidedly more widespread, is typical of Altamura and Monopoli in the Bari area, of Palagiano and Pulsano in the Taranto area. and of San Vito dei Normanni in the Brindisi area, they should all derive from a nickname indicating that the progenitor occupied a prominent position, such as that of capobarca, or rais, or re, this hypothesis is the most probable, but not it is obviously the only one, they could also derive from a nickname motivated by the imperious or haughty attitudes of the progenitor.
