Etymological origin of Italian surname: Longitano


LONGHITANO | LONGITANO

Longhitano is specific to Bronte and Catania in the Catania area, with a strain also in Centuripe in the Enna area and in the rest of the Catanese area, Longitano, almost unique, should be due to errors in transcription of the previous one, should derive from the popular Latin word longhitanus or longitanus (far, who is coming from far away) used to indicate a foreigner of the place, but it is also possible, although much less probable, that the term indicates a resident of Longi near Tortorici in the Messina area, thus characterizing the place of origin of the progenitor.
