Very rare it is typical of the Cosenza area, it should derive from a dialectal variation of the Latin cognomen Petrus. additions provided by Pasquale Lopetrone From a research carried out in the parish registers I was able to ascertain that the surname Lopetrone is an altered surname because the priests added during the 1600s, in their recordings, to the surname PETRONE the article LO, therefore the PETRON of San Giovanni in Fiore became LOPETRONE. I can still document that all those that are called LOPETRONE have origins in San Giovanni in Fiore, since the addition of the prefix (LO) occurred in this town of Cosenza.
