Lodde, decidedly Sardinian, is typical of northern Sardinia, of Sassari in particular, Loddi è dell'iglesiente, Loddo is typical of southern Sardinia, could derive from toponyms such as Loddus di Gesturi (CA), but most probably derive from nicknames originating from the dialect word Sardinian logodurese lòdde (fox), from Gallurese loddi or from a southern dialectal modification. additions provided by Davide Loddo from medieval archival sources show that the surname Loddo is a variant of the surname Lollo, present already in the late ancient age and very widespread in Sardinia during the judicial age. The double d took the place of l for a particular rule of Sardinian phonetics.
